The wisdom of nature speaks to us heart to heart, and nature's first language is beauty. The Art of Nature is a musical and visual odyssey that explores the magnificence of nature's grand design. On this journey, nature's palette explodes with visions of spectacular cascading waterfalls, lush temperate rain forests, shimmering reflections and the vast and mysterious landscapes of the desert. In addition, time lapse photography reveals the wonder of natural processes not visible to the naked eye.
Emmy-winning actor Tom Skerritt narrates this journey through the seasons and colors of nature with poetry that mirrors the majesty of the locations onscreen. The narration is minimal, but the scenery itself and the music of Michael Gettel are what truly propel these images of the natural world.
In its 48 minutes, The Art of Nature: Reflections on the Grand Design offers colorful glimpses of the pieces of the world that many of us generally ignore. With time-lapse photography, we are able to see, in just a matter of minutes, a full day by a country stream and the full progression of stars in the night. While the music, poetry, and images may seem a bit New Age for some, the disc provides emotions and vistas that are indeed timeless.
