Hello! Thanks for stopping by. This is the 18th in a series of videos designed for relaxation / stress relief. As the title partially suggests, these are (wherever possible) unedited, not retouched, not dubbed, widescreen, five minute (sometimes more, but never less) videos that were shot with a tripod-mounted, static, high definition camera that shoots at an eye-popping 60 frames per second (but I sometimes use 30 fps, as I did here, for the sake of reducing uploading and processing times, to reduce or eliminate the annoying stop-start stop-start during viewing, and because the quality is still very high high-def). Here are two hints to help improve your viewing experience: First, click on the HD button in the lower righthand corner just below the video image, and this will give you the largest and highest quality image available on YouTube. Click on HD again if you see no improvement and/or it causes the video to keep stopping and starting. Second: If you are using a laptop computer, try tipping the screen back and away from you about 10 degrees for improved image. The closer your screen is to 90 degrees (straight up & down), the more washed-out and flat will be your viewing experience. I am hopeful that with some of the aforementioned fine tuning on your part, you will almost feel like you are right there in the scene.
I have traveled many miles, and hiked considerable distances to bring you what I believe are (in as many instances as possible) settings of undisturbed beauty in God's incredible Creation. You will discover that most of these videos involve water, because I feel that there is something about the sound, movement and look of water that simply does not have its equal when it comes to soothing the savage beast. I hope you enjoy my videos, and that they succeed in their intended purpose. I would greatly appreciate your comments (good, bad or indifferent - just please keep them civil - no reason to be mean), votes and word of mouth to friends and family.
NOTE: Comments containing profanity, name-calling or bad-mouthing will be quickly and unceremoniously removed by yours truly. Comments that have nothing whatsoever to do with the video will also be removed. My decisions are final and come with no appeal rights. I would only expect these profane and pointless kinds of comments to come from people who are not actually watching, using or enjoying the videos, but those who have nothing better to do with their time than to vandalize someone else's thread. I see so much of that on YouTube that I thought I would try, in my own small way, to lessen it where possible.
Thanks in advance for your understanding and cooperation in these matters.
