What People Are Saying About Below the Clouds / Rainier Impressions
I think the DVD is beautiful. From the detail of a flower to the majesty of
the peak, the DVD is creative, joyful, and meditative. Thank you for your
IT MADE ME CRY – I just wanted to get a quick note off to you telling you
how much I LOVED "Below the Clouds." I watched it last night
and I will watch it many more times. I recognized many of the places on
my own but the identification segment is truly wonderful. I have decided
to give it to my sister for Christmas and I know that she will cry, as
well. It is beautiful, wonderful, all inclusive and the music is perfect.
Thank you to you and yours for an outstanding view of OUR MOUNTAIN.

capture the essence of the mountain and the surrounding national park.

I just saw the film, Below the Clouds, on KCTS. I just wanted
to send a note and thank you for making it. The film is so peaceful and
exhibits all the special features of Rainier. I am not one to normally
sit down and just watch TV – but I sat and watched every minute.
It was one of the most calming and uplifting experiences I have had in
a long time.
Thank YOU! I watched and recorded the show last week. It was a beautiful
program and definitely captured the essence of Mt. Rainier. Thank you for
your wonderful work.

I thoroughly enjoyed the KCTS presentation of your film on Rainier. It
was absolutely wonderful and I thank you.
We wanted to let you know we watched the film last night and
it was fantastic.

WOW!!!! I am trying to think of an adjective that best describes
your film and can’t come up with anything great enough. Superb, mind
boggling, stupendous, extraordinary. Needless to say, I loved it. What
a legacy for all of us. I love the mountain and your film put into pictures
the many things I see and can’t document on my hiking. The music
Thank you so much for letting me view this spectacular film.
I really enjoyed watching your Rainier film last night. The
images and soundtrack were beautiful. Your love for the mountain really
shines through and you obviously have logged many hours gathering all the
excellent footage. Grouping the different sections emotionally, made me
watch each section with more of a purpose.
Thank you for sharing.
I’m awestruck. Really gorgeous stuff. I recognize many
of the places. OHHHH, Grand Park, nice.
I watched your film last night on channel 9. Nice work, beautiful
photography! The camera work was great and the accompanying music gave
it a nice touch. The film really gave a sense of the mountain, like I had
visited those same areas and hiked the trails myself.
Great eye for detail in your photography. In our hurried lives, it’s
sometimes easy to forget to look around. I feel like now, clearing the
dust off my under-used hiking boots and finding a good trail to walk!
Great piece and one to be proud of. Thanks for the work.

I so enjoyed your film. You paid spectacular homage to The Mountain.
Congratulations on your achievement!
