The Living Landscape Series of Blue Ray discs is unlike any other video series.

It's important to understand what these are, so you will not be disappointed. These are NOT entertainment videos, and NOT educational videos. If you are looking for a documentary ... look elsewhere. But one step more than that... these are also NOT videos that are designed to be "interesting" or to "keep your attention"... rather... they are extremely pleasant background videos.

Most people would probably not sit down and actively WATCH these videos from beginning to end (at least not more than one time, out of curiosity). They are meant to be a soothing... meditative... UNEVENTFUL... relaxing background images with very subtle nature sounds.

You should be advised that the camera pans across the up-close landscape images very, very slowly. It does not change from scene to scene quickly... it lingers at great length... hanging upon a single scene for with minimal camera movement for a few minutes at a clip.

It's nice to have this playing while you are reading, or cooking, or working on your computer... and just occasionally glancing up at the screen... rather than sitting and intently focussing upon the video as if it were some sort of "feature presentation" to watch. You may also find it helps to put you to sleep, or to calm an infant.

So honestly... this type of video is not for everyone... probably not for most people... but if you like the meditative and slow lingering of the camera upon water droplets tickling off a branch without the scene changing for two minutes or more... then maybe this is for you.

Personally, I like it. It's like the video form of Valium.

Reeeeeeeeelaaaaaaaaax. :)

The Olympic Rainforest and the Redwood Forest are my two favorite discs in this series.

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.

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.

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.

I own most of the living landscapes series and Iove them all, but I am selling this one. I am the type-A sort of person who cannot sit in the backyard without seeing a weed that needs pulling, which I get up and go pull. So this video set off that need. I also worried that the heavy moss, etc., hanging on the trees was killing the trees like kudzu. I am one of those people who actually watch these videos since I am not likely to go there, and I turn off the music so I can hear the birds and water - which there is not much of in this video - mostly it is a bunch of Boston ferns, moss, etc., who seem to be thriving in this area. I figure the photographer must have set up the camera to move a centimeter at a time and then went to lunch. That would have been fine if the scenery was beautiful, but this looked like an area that no one cares about so is left to itself, which is probably what it wants.

one of the many half a dozen visual high definition Blu-ray discs that I used to test the quality when I first got my high definition TV and Blu-ray player good for relaxing and listening to and testing out your equipment visually pleasing but kind of short on the clips basically I think these things were used for what I just explained above early selling point high definition Blu-ray TV and player demonstration discs for sales displays
