This review is from: Yellowstone [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Having been in Yellowstone for 3 Weeks, I was rather excited to watch it on Blu-ray.
What can I say, the footage is marvelous. Very intimate insight into the live of Yellowstone during the harshest winter season, were temperatures drop to 70`Fahrenheit. I'm a private videotographer so I know when artists are at work. I was just stunned how many differen angeles a wolf chase was taken at. And perfectly so, really close up. For the just mere mortals Yellostone is closed during wintertime. Streets up to 15 feet under snowfall. How it was possible to set up a camerateam in these conditions defies my imagination. And there were multiple teams out there in one location. It must have been incredibly difficult. Only people who really love the environment and do relate to the wildlife are able to pull off a feat like that.
The picture quality is superb. Especially with aerial wide angle shots the detail you could make out got me almost on my knees. On a mountain slope, kilometers away you could cleary see the tracks of different animals. That is just amazing.
The eery atmosphere of hissing geysers, steaming pools of surreal colors and fogy mountains is put together like in a dream.
The sound quality doesn't stand behind. Very nice and clear surround sound.
- incredible satelite images in a quality I didn't believe to be possible
- hunting packs of wolves
- captivating aereal images
- otters roaming through the snow to find ice-free riverbeds
- coyotes hunting mice in 3 feet deep snow
- impressive geyser activity
- buffalo and how they struggle to pull through this extremely cold weather
- grizzly bears with cubs
- and lots and lots more
It kept me in awe for the whole running time. I just can't recommend it enough, for children and adults alike.
