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 wonderful work.

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.

The combination of Chrestensen’s camerawork and the original music composed by Annastasia Workman creates a montage of sights and sounds that 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,

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 was perfect.

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 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.
