In the soft amber glow of a secluded northern bay, sea gulls prepare for evening. The sun slowly sets, night falls and the scene shifts to a full moon rising over a southern ocean gleaming with reflected light. We are hypnotized by the ebb and flow of churning waves. Time stretches out and a glorious sunrise heralds the next moment of our video tour of Earth's water systems. These intimate video portraits of the natural world follow the cycle of water from salty ocean waves to breathtaking views of mountain peaks and blue white glaciers, down rocky hillsides gushing with snow melt streams and coursing along salmon-spawning rivers where eagles gather to feed in quiet pools.
