Too fast-paced for relaxation

"I agree with other reviewers that the images and music are gorgeous. The landscapes are breathtakingly beautiful. Yet I want other buyers to realize what I didn't: many of the scenes are filmed with time-lapse photography. In other words, the clouds and shadows move across the landscape in accelerated motion. Some viewers will like this pace and won't mind that the naturally inspiring landscape has been altered. But for me, this created a sense of hurry and hectic rushing through time instead of the simplicity and calm of a real-time cinescape. Some of the chapters are presented at normal speed. These are the ones I find most enjoyable, and I only wish the talents who created this had let the natural beauty and their skills stand alone. Many will enjoy this film as it is. I had expected a simpler version of nature."
Beautiful but frustrating

"The images on this DVD are as beautiful as advertised but other than knowing they are of National Parks going in as you watch you have no idea wich ones you are looking at. I watched this with two other people we all felt a small indication of what parks you are seeing would have made this much more enjoyable"
David Fortney's work...

"I haven't actually seen this DVD yet. I have several of the Elements CD/DVD comboinations which features Fortney's work on Deseert Light. Desert Light has some incredible footage done by Fortney. It features excerpts from EarthFlight, accompanied by Enya's On Your Shore, Symphony of Light which I think is now called Light Dance featuring Santana's music and Majestic National Parks, with relaxing classical music. I've read other posts on similar items and many complain about the speed of the time lapsed filming and I do agree, to an extent,that it is a bit fast, but I still have found these DVDs to be nothing but relaxing and a welcomed break from some of the crap on cable TV. I was about to admit myself to the funny farm until I fund these DVDs. It's like taking a vacation in your own home. After watching these I realized how tense I had become at just watching TV, especially the News. I'm banking on this Timeless DVD to top the others he has out."

"Watching this unbelievable DVD in HD on television is akin to being there in person. Such wonderful images of OUR National Parks. Brilliantly filmed. Can be watched over, and over with great joy."
