The spectacular scenery of some of the most beautiful lighthouses along Northern California's coast, shot in widescreen high definition is now available on DVD. Wild ocean waves dash relentlessly against the rocks, as a singular beacon of light blazes from a century old tower- a seascape of natural serenity that is at once timeless and mesmerizing. Storm clouds gather, as a golden hued sunset turns to dusk behind a lone lighthouse perched majestically on the edge of the vast Pacific. Lighthouses of Northern California is accompanied by the soothing sounds of foghorns, wind and the rising swells breaking against the shore. Additional ambient music underscores the serene beauty. For sheer scenic poetry... for a tranquil end to a stressful day...for the perfect romantic ambience, Lighthouses of Northern California is the ultimate scenic passport to deep chill relaxation. Just load it up and the DVD automatically loops. And the DVD can be played on any Standard format DVD player, Widescreen format DVD player or any computer with DVD playing capability. Choose between the relaxing music, or just the soothing sounds of waves. (Caution: driving or operating dangerous equipment after viewing is not advised.)

You can choose between GREAT music (usually i hate watching relaxation dvds with music but this music does really hypnotize you)or a mix between the sounds of waves and distant fog horns,which is great.
Ok, the scenes are maybe a bit TOO long and they should change more often (more than five minutes for the same scene)but thats ok cause they are all extremly beautiful and relaxing. I also have the zen garden dvds from this producers,they also have not enaugh scenes unfortunately.
The only thing that really disturbes me is the picture and audio quality. The picture does not have HD-Quality, dont get me wrong,its not bad, but colors are not vivid enaugh , it all seems a bit dull,dark and grey which actually is great for a video like this to get you in the right mood, sunshine would not be good here, but this is not what i mean. What i mean is that you just see that they did not use the best equiptment here.The picture is not sharp enaugh,but still ok.
But when it comes to the audio:especially the sound of the waves has a very bad quality, im really sorry.
And then there is another problem:i have tried it with several different dvd players, the dvd does not have any menu.If you press menu all you see is a grey screen-and then the dvd does not work anymore, you can do whatever you want, you can press play,stop, back...everything, but nothing makes the dvd work again.
I had to remove it from the player and then start it again.As i told you before-this is not my players fault,cause ive tried 3 different players-two dvd players and the pc drive!Everywhere the same problem.
But i think you should buy the dvd anyway if you like lighthouses,the ocean and sunsets (or all together).Just dont watch it on a very big lcd and never press the menu button.
This dvd with a better audio and picture quality would deserve 10.000 stars .
Interestingly enough, I noticed there's NOT much other relaxation DVDs on the market that capture twilight landscapes. I can only assume it's very hard to capture images after dark. The lighthouse DVD offers ample rewards in this respect, and stands apart in an otherwise crowded field of generic and uninspired relaxation DVDs.
Operational wise, it worked exactly as it was suppose to- it played automatically when I put it in the player, and it automatically returned to the beginning when it got at the end. No problems. I didn't have to do a thing other than load it into the player. I like that. And I played it on my laptop at work, and several of my players around the house. Everything worked fine. My one suggestion is that the scenes didn't last long enough. I wish they would have went on longer than five minutes per scene, just as I was getting into one scene it faded to the next. But that's just me.
If you're looking for bright, flowery, generic images of island beaches at high noon this is not it. But if you want a tone piece that is starkly beautiful, moody, and unforgettable, this one is brilliant. A lighthouse at sea is a uniquely beautiful, hypnotizing structure and transfixing to watch. And this DVD captures it magnificently.
