Quality production - gorgeous videography

"The Living Landscapes series is one of highest quality productions I have seen in the genre.

The dvd clearly states that the video is interwoven with music, and I do agree with the reviewer in that I love the option of having nature sounds only, music, or both together on a dvd. Even though this is not an option on this series. the music is well done, and fits well with the scenery.

I took the time to ask the producer of this series to add this option for future releases, as there are some exciting titles coming up like The African Savannah and The Swiss Alps. Some of the videos are shot in time lapse, which makes the sequencing of natural sounds difficult, but I was told that this would be a feature that would be added in the future.

I am hoping this will be so, but on that Afican title I want some music that will match the modd of the title for a different experience as well.

The scenery is breathtaking, and it is a guaranteed escape to a place that most of us can only dream of seeing in person. It is well produced, and a true treat.

"Living landscapes, includes the sounds of vehicles passing by and people talking, just for a few minutes, but those few minutes kill the mood and comfort of the whole point of the visuals and sounds of this film."
Definitely Not for Action fans

"Other than for minor issues with resolution 1080 down to 720p, an outstanding view of the Olympic Rainforest, including the Hoh. If nature and quiet rain or the sound of waterfalls at HD bores you to tears, go to something like "The Dark Knight". If peaceful green and soft raindrops are more your style, get this for your Blu-ray player and HD TV."

"I have a good number of nature video dvd's, Let me say that with this Bluray edition of Olympic Rainforest a very interesting thing occurred not that long ago.
Some weeks ago while So. California was in the midst's of one of the fabled Santa Ana heat waves I popped this beautiful disc into my home theater, punched up 5.1 surround and began to walk the rainforest when I realized that I was experiencing a physical reaction of it becoming cooler in the room. Watching the rain dripping off of fern tips and the fog and mists wafting through the air was having a real psychological and physiological effect on me. Coupled with the music and natural sound effects of dripping water, running water, it was just pure enjoyment. The videography is simply artful. It is a real treat to walk the paths through this amazing natural wonder. I highly recommend this dvd but you must get the BluRay versions or HDDVD if you have a player. Treat yourself to a feast of the senses. It's beauty at a walking pace. Enjoy the immersion."
