Pictures to Music with MS Moviemaker

I saw this as a great opportunity to put some pictures from a unique summer trip to music and present it as a video through YouTube.

I did an interesting two week vacation with my oldest son in August; a trip that I have always wanted to do and will probably never do again. It is not something most people would do, so hopefully this makes it intriguing enough for you to click on the link and watch my 4-minute video. Ball to Boine to Burstall You may need to open the link in a new tab.

I used Windows Live Movie Maker to create the slide show. All pictures are my own and the music is from a music commons site. The song for the slide show is from the Jamendo website site. It is called Great Spirit from the album If It doesn’t last forever by Wooden Legs.

Here are links to parks that we journeyed through:

Banff National Park, Alberta

Kootenay National Park, BC

Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park, BC

Height of the Rockies Provincial Park, BC

Peter Loughheed Provincial Park, Alberta

As we were out of cell phone range for the entire trip, we communicated using my son’s smartphone that connected through Bluetooth to a satellite messenger device called SPOT that we carried with us. The communication was one way only, but it gave us the opportunity to let family and friends know that we were okay every day.  Here is the link to the SPOT Connect system.

  1. This is beautifully done! I love the music!

  2. Oh, the Rockies! I love being there. Looks like you had a mix of weather – as to be expected in the mountains for a couple of weeks. I had a nice trip there this year myself. We did a back country ski to Mt. Skoki on spring break. Gorgeous weather, but we were only there for 2 days.

    Thanks for the link to the Jamendo site – I’ll have to check that out.

    Hi Jennifer:

    Yes the Rockies are great, my favorite playground. We were very fortunate with the weather; only one day of showers and one day of snow. The other days were dry and sunny. Luckily we were at a campground that snow day with a cook shelter so we used it as a rest day.

    When was spring break when you went into Skoki? I did a day trip there on Easter Monday – last trip of the year. What a great place.
