Hot

Hot is a photo of some trees in a landscape with blue sky and yellow grass in the foreground.  This image was shot on a hot summer day many years ago when I used to wander aorund on lunch breaks shooting digital photos.  I like this image because it seems to be a summer theme.  When I see it it reminds me of those days when fall is coming and the the sweltering sun is pounding down on us… the times when a gentle breeze may seem like a comforting touch from God himself.

This photo was shot in what used to be a large field type area with trees nearby at the Quarterdeck Building in Columbia, Missouri. I worked in that location for nearly 14 years when I worked for the University of Missouri. A lot of recent construction in the area has massively removed this type of view of nature from this area. In the woods on the other side of the building from where this was shot an ancient deer stand can be found if you look close enough for it. It is kind of scary that deer hunters used to come here since the location is almost on top of the main shoulder in the main highway between Columbia and Jefferson City.

Tree Study

Tree Study is a small zip file of 350 jpg files that are reference photos of trees.  

 Several of the photos are scrolling ‘close up’ panoramas of the tree trunk texture surface shot close to the base of the tree trunk, with aim of camera following trunk up from the ground level, and then angled to capture base shape of the branches, etc. higher up.  Some of the other photos are simply texture photos of the same type angle simply shot one after the other in a sort of hand done burst type of photo.

These photos were shot in a local park. There’s about 3 trees being photographed here. There’s also one file that is a ‘close up’ of grass in the same are these trees were located.  

These are mainly reference photos to capture the basic texture of the tree trunk’s bark and basic shape of the tree and branches.

Since there are some panoramic shots in here dimensions of each image vary widely.  On one extreme we have some dimensons so wide as 912 x 17534 and 1577 x 10147, 1382 x 11574 etc. Most of the simple one shot images are 4032 x 1960 or 1960 x 4032. 

All of these were shot by hand, so unfortunately no aid was used to keep camera lens equidistant from the texture between each image. I did try to be steady, but that doesn’t always work in this type of random enironmental photography.  In the future if I try to do more studies like this I plan to use some a small toy truck to act as a dolly to keep the camera’s angle more steadily equidistant from the texure being shot.

Tundra Landscape

Tundra Landscape is is a panoramic photo of a deserted estate where a gas station used to be many years ago.  The winter has come and left snow.  Ice is on the broken pavement.  This deserted location has a desolate beauty to it as the sun sets.  Clouds create interesting formations in the sky.  The limbs of the tree have no leaves.  Winter has set in on this beautiful barren landscape.

Overpassed Beauty Collection

Overpassed Beauty Collection on Google Photos is a collection of images that I have started cultivating tonight.  Each image in the group is photos related to an overpass or bridge that I have shot with a digital camera at some point in the last several years.  If any of the images in the collection are for sale on Art Station I’m linking the url to the sales page in comments on each photo.  I will grow this collection over time as I edit and weed out the images that need to be removed, changed, etc.

Happy Viewing.  This is sort of retrospective of my highway shooting.  For the most part I have stopped shooting videos and photos on the highways in moving vehicles because it’s too much of a distracted danger…  but doing so in the past certainly has created some beautiful images.

Cold Twilight Cloudscape is a series of photos and panoramas recently shot near a local airport when the frigid temperatures allowed the contrails of air traffic to stay in place long enought to make some interesting cloud formations as the sun was setting.
