Some places are so beautiful and astounding in person, it’s difficult to capture their essence in a video. However, this video, produced by GALAXIID and shot by Aliscia Young and Richard Sidey, manages to transmit the feeling of wilderness, of a natural landscape made with water, mountains, whales, fjords, and bears.

The authors define it as “a visual nature essay from the coastal wilderness of Southern Alaska.” It was shot during an expedition in July 2015 and it will make you want to travel there and immerse yourself in nature.
