"There are six scenes. In each a stationary camera captures Sun's rays penetrating the forest. Footage for each scene is less then a minute long but is repeated about fifteen times or so. Theme music can be considered meditative.
This DVD will likely not appeal to nature lovers. It gets two stars for possible use as a meditation tool."

"Perhaps the two previous reviewers were looking for something else than what I found in this gem of a DVD. I live in a very urban environment and Parks seem controlled,manicured and articial. How is Nature really like? This DVD shows us that if we take the time to look, Take a "mini-vacation" put this on play and under "audio options" choose "natural"or, if you prefer, choose "silence" under audio options and put soothing music. (I choose to listen to John Dowlands Lutes works -- which is available nere or make a playlist with your favorite piano music by Phil Coulter-- which is also available at amazon and then,go about doing your daily chores around the house and occasionally stop and contemplate on Her beauty. It is healing .You can also get video goggles, and watch it using them for a totally immersive experience. Also check out:[[ASIN:B0000C3I8A Oreade Music: Waterfalls-DVD] Also check out

Real-Time, Still Camera

"In each of the few scenes, the camera never moves at all, so you just, for example, watch sunlight in real-time pass by a great tree for 10 minutes, then for the next 10, watch rain fall on tall grass field, all with a still camera which never ever pan around or zoom out or move in any way. Sigh."
