The River's Edge

February 7th, 2015

This was taken at Indian Beach in Oregon. The edge of the stream looked like a cliff in a miniature world. I love the texture of the rocks. I used a second image to darken the sky a little bit.

Water Droplets

January 28th, 2013

Some nicely formed water droplets on a plant in the Braunschweiger Botanischer Garten.

The perfect roundness of the droplets is created because of hydrophobic effect of the leaf.

Timeless Bond

February 24th, 2016

Although there is certainly a poetry to the world when it's alive and full of people, there is simply nothing that can possibly compare to that same world when no one else is around. It is stripped of the extraneous energy and second hand emotion that occurs when you're lost in a crowd (even if that crowd is small). You're seeing it raw… bare. It's an otherworldly experience to say the least.

Now add sunrise to the mix. That's the time when the earth itself wakes up. Shades of understated grey give way to hues of lilac, violet, and lemon that simply don't exist later in the day. It is the visual equivalent of listening to an orchestra tuning up just before the performance of a lifetime.

This shot features a private boathouse along the main river of Perth. (If you've visited the area, you may know it well!)

At sunrise on this crisp winter morning, it appeared wise… knowing. A loan witness to this beautiful world at this extraordinary time of day, there at the end of that simple, weathered pier.

The Grand Prismatic Spring

July 14th, 2013

The Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park is the largest hot spring in the United States, and the third largest in the world.

The vivid colors in the spring are the result of pigmented bacteria in the microbial mats that grow around the edges of the mineral-rich water. The bacteria produce colors ranging from green to red; the amount of color in the microbial mats depends on the ratio of chlorophyll to carotenoids and on the temperature of the water which favors one bacterium over another. In the summer, the mats tend to be orange and red, whereas in the winter the mats are usually dark green. The center of the pool is sterile due to extreme heat.

The deep blue color of the water in the center of the pool results from the intrinsic blue color of water, itself the result of water's selective absorption of red wavelengths of visible light. Though this effect is responsible for making all large bodies of water blue, it is particularly intense in Grand Prismatic Spring because of the high purity and depth of the water in the middle of the spring.

The spring is approximately 250 by 300 feet (80 by 90 m) in size and is 160 feet (50 m) deep. The spring discharges an estimated 560 US gallons (2,100 L) of 160 F (70 C) water per minute.

Morning Dewdrops

January 26th, 2013

A render in Daz Bryce 7 with a very high depth-of-field effect. It took me very long to get the scene right, especially with these colours... For the first time ever, I opened it up in Photoshop to realize it didn't need any post-processing!
