Glowing Giant
One of the first of hopefully several new space pieces I'm working on — I'm planning to create a new site for these, but that takes forever to get off the ground and I thought I'd share this one early.

This is an illustration of Uranus that was inspired by the incredibly smooth gradient sphere photos taken by Voyager. There's something about those photos, the quality of the smooth color, that I wanted to capture here. The rings and moons were all modeled as close to scale as possible (both in terms of distance and visual size) to make this image as realistic as I could. 

Hood River Autumn 2016
Capturing the Hood River Valley at sunrise in the autumn is starting to feel like an annual pilgrimage — and one I never regret making. The light and atmosphere never disappoint, and Mt. Hood looming in the background with its fresest coating of snow is always impressive. This particular morning must have been colder than I realized, as the valley filled with haze and woodsmoke immediately after I captured this panorama. I'm guessing the autumn chill inspired lots of folks to fire up the woodburning stoves for tea, coffee and cocoa. I have to admit I was a bit jealous, but luckily I had only a short time to wait until the local breweries opened so I could get my own cup of cheer.

A selection from my VIEWS of the Pacific Northwest project, dedicated to capturing sweeping panoramic views from around the area and turning them into high-resolution panoramic wallpapers.
