Simple Sunset

April 18th, 2006

I've never been able to find a sunset background I was satisfied with so I created my own. This composition took about twelve hours to complete; the burning coals at the campsite in the widescreen version took twenty minutes alone. It's a beautiful day and I just spent it inside replicating nature, depressingly ironic, but at least I have a sunset to show for it.

Nice picture! I really like the various shades of color around the sunset locked in concentric rings. Keep it up!

I just wanted to thank you for your picture. I too have been unsatisfied with the sunset desktop artwork I've encountered, largely because they seem somehow sad and waning. I thought your artwork was vibrant and hopeful, and the use of light looks absolutely wonderful on my 20" iMac G5.

Thanks so much!

Fantastic, thanks for the great background. Looks great on my new widescreen monitor! Love the colours and overall simplicity.

This is going to be my background for a while... I love the glow of the fire pit. Thanks for sacrificing a beautiful day to create this beautiful desktop!

Very nice indeed. On my 12inch powerbook I don't get the campsite, which is a pity but it is still an eye popper of an image and deeply appreciated. Thanks.

I just wanted to say thanks as well. Usually I replace my backgrounds really quick because they are often over detailed and disctracting but this is perfect. Thank you again for such a great background!

"It's a beautiful day and I just spent it inside replicating nature"

The past-time of modern society it seems. Mor concerned with replicating it or mimicing it than seeing it clearly and embracing it. Ah, but I won't get too metaphorical on you. Lovely work here.

I remembered this wallpaper from a long time ago. After endless tag searching and flipping through a bunch of pages, I've finally found it! Very soothing, just as I remembered. Is there any way to get some updated resolutions?
