The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

A training video, for when Bruce finally moves to his lighthouse:



Technicalities:
"Filmed on 35 mm black and white Double-X 5222 film stock, augmenting the Panavision Millennium XL2 camera with vintage Baltar lenses designed in the 1930s. To enhance the image, making it resemble early photography, a custom cyan filter made by Schneider Filters that emulated the look and feel of orthochromatic film from the late 19th century was used."

"The film has an aspect ratio of 1.19:1, an almost-square frame that was used in the early sound years by filmmakers including Fritz Lang and G.W. Pabst. They choose the format because 'the spaces in this movie are meant to feel confined, it's more of a close-up movie than The Witch. The idea of widescreen only came about in the 1950s - we wanted to take people back further than that.'"
Personal note: one never holds a clay pipe that way or it will scorch your fingers. :mrgreen:

There's something cool about a house that sits precisely on the horizon, except that this one sits just slightly below the horizon. I'm afraid that would bother me.🤔

Your OCD gets out of hand. That's the price to pay for living on a sphere… :mrgreen:



OK, let's roughen up the terrain:

Imagine the amount of food that must've been eaten to enable humans to move that many rocks... I mean... Fuck!

I traveled to the Aran Islands. The lady accompanying me was adamant that erecting the stone walls was used to combat sexual frustration.

Holy shit! A lovely place to explore. Booze is most likely superb. How was the food?
