A few months ago we happened to be walking through a store and saw a 42” LCD HD-TV at a fabulous price. I mean a FABULOUS price. We’d been a one TV household for so long I’d almost forgotten what it’s like to be able to sit down and watch a movie on something other than a computer. So we jumped on the HD bandwagon. We watched a few movies but since I don’t even want to get started building a collection of blue ray discs, most of what we were watching wasn’t taking advantage of the HD ability of the TV. Until we got the new Apple TV that is.
Apple TV is nice because it allows you to watch anything from iTunes on your TV. But it also allows you to watch anything from YouTube on your TV (FREE) and that’s where I found the most beautiful HD video I’d ever seen on TV, Yosemite Nature Notes.
You would not BELIEVE how beautiful Yosemite Nature Notes looks on a large HD TV. The images are so sharp and detailed, the vistas so beautiful your jaw will drop. It makes you want to just drop everything and go to Yosemite.
If you’ve got an Apple TV I highly recommend checking out Yosemite Nature Notes.
Simply go to the main menu and select Internet. Then the second option down is YouTube. Go to Search and search for Yosemite Nature Notes. My favorite is Episode 5: Snow.
