5.0 out of 5 stars This is a spectacular trip down the Grand Canyon! August 7, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you have never been to the Grand Canyon but have always wanted to, this is the DVD for you! I have not been there, but have seen many still pictures taken by professional photographers. The photographs are great, but one cannot hear the rapids and waterfalls or the beautiful classical music, which I love. Video is taken from the top of the rim, flying overhead, to the bottom of the canyon where the Colorado river flows and visitors in boats ride the rapids. (It is amazing that the gear and supplies loaded in the back of the boat never move, although the people do.) Sunrise to sunset through all four seasons, one sees the amazingly varied vistas while listening to wonderful, carefully chosen classical music. The music cadence moves perfectly along with the scenery, especially the rapids. Some of the composers are Vivaldi, Dvorak, Tchaikovsky and Brahms. I watch this film often both to view the scenery and listen to the music. I now feel I have had the experience of visiting the Grand Canyon even though I did it in my own living room.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful music, beautful scenery! July 24, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We never get tired of watching and listening to this tribute to the Grand Canyon. The beautiful photography and well-matched music provide hours of soothing, relaxing video. Enjoy the Colorado River from beginning to end with, of course, emphasis on the Grand Canyon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Grand Canyon Video I've Seen November 12, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I've ordered two or three videos of the Grand Canyon, looking for something that would capture the grandeur of this place - and all were disappointing. This one, however, does the trick. There's not much talking during the video, just wonderful music and extraordinary photography that lets the Grand Canyon speak for itself. I think I'll be able to watch this beautiful video time and time again. I can't imagine getting tired of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful experience October 18, 2011

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We have been to the Canyon three or four times but have never seen it's true beauty due to weather conditions. It's so vast that it's almost impossible to process. The photography in this DVD is gorgeous and the music added so much to our enjoyment. We liked it so much, we sent a copy to friends from Australia, whom we met on a National Parks Tour.

This was a great video of the Grand Canyon, with many shots of well-known vistas and many side trips to less well-known places in the area. All wonderful....

Much of the HD is great quality, but some of the video is not as sharp as others.

The background music is classical -- a nice selection of mostly familiar pieces. I thought it was an appropriate and non-obtrusive selection. There's very little speaking. The landscape can speak for itself, and it does!

There were not a lot of reviews of this Blu-ray, but I found it excellent. I don't think you can go wrong with this! I strongly recommend this to experience something amazing with your "big screen" TV.

This should be seen by everyone who loves nature....

What a way to see so many vistas and part of the Grand Canyon!
The combination of scenery and music proved mystifying, uplifting, and somehow beyond Nature.
