BestHike VERTICAL Videos

TikTok has forced every other social media platform — including YouTube — towards shorter, vertical videos.

We have eyes side-by-side, so landscape photos and videos are more natural.

The ONLY reason to post anything in a vertical format is because it’s the default position of your mobile phone. 😀

I’ve tried several times to convert landscape to vertical. For example, here’s a teaser for our longer BestHike BEST VIDEO Highlights 2022.

Here’s the same video uploaded to Instagram.

David: I’d Rather Be Hiking

Over the pandemic, I really got into creating hiking videos. Learning how to edit. Getting a drone. I had the time.

Time enough to launch the BestHike YouTube channel.

I was based out of my parent’s house on Vancouver Island.

Over the pandemic weeks and months, I closely followed David’s I’d Rather Be Hiking YouTube channel and Facebook page.

David is also based out of Vancouver Island. And inspired many of my own hikes there.

BestHike VIDEO Highlights 2022

Some of the BEST video clips captured by BestHike editor Rick McCharles in 2022. 

Norway, Portugal, Spain, Canary Islands, finishing in British Columbia.  

His favourite music of 2022 was by Odesza — so it’s appropriate that the soundtrack is one of their songs: Wide Awake.

Here’s to us all being Wide Awake in 2023.

For comparison, before Rick got a drone, here’s his 2021 Highlights VIDEO.
