Karesansui (Night)
"Here's a night version of my updated "Karesansui". I stayed with the original lighting scene (rather than adding visible lanterns) as I wanted to keep the focus on the foreground. Let me know what you think!!"

"I was never really happy with the clouds in my original "Moonshadow" render. For this update I wanted to simulate a real "moonshadow" with the clouds (some still lit by the sun and some are in shadow). You may notice that quite a bit of this scene as adapted from "The Green Flash". I put a lot of trial and error work into achieving those atmospheric/beach effects and I didn't want to re-invent the wheel for what would essentially be the same environment. You can think of this piece as a companion to "The Green Flash" if you'd like, taking place a bit further up the beach ;-) As with the original Moonshadow, I'm sure a lot of people would prefer there be no human in this piece. I may provide such a render later, once I am happy with the "final" settings. Let me know what you think!"

"Moonshadow 2014"
Add the 4 arched 'Blood Moons' we are experiencing to this image!

See for inspiration.

The Dreamer
"Inspired by the film "Life of Pi" and dedicated to my boys who are both dreamers in their own way. This scene was modeled and rendered using Vue d'Esprit 2014. The ripples are a custom map which I rendered using Lightwave."

I love this one, but I think the blades of the oars and the soles of the guys feet are too "clean".

The Green Flash
"The very first night I spent in San Diego (back in 98 or 99 I believe), I had dinner at a place in Pacific Beach called "The Green Flash". The name intrigued me and I found at that the "green flash" refers to the green color the sun takes on just as the very last bit of it disappears below the horizon.

I had the opportunity to return to San Diego recently to visit with old friends. This wallpaper is my homage my old home in the west and the years I lived there.

I used Vue d'Esprit's "planetary" mode to allow me to place clouds (and the sun) beneath the horizon line so I could create godbeams from beyond the curve of the earth. Tricky to set up and it took forever to render (to clean up the noise) but you let me know if was worth it. "

"Love it!"
This is currently my background at work. Trust me it was hard to choose one because you have so many wonderful images. Every time someone sees my desktop they comment about how beautiful this is and I take the opportunity to tell them about your site :-)

Endless Blue (Night)
"I started work on a night-time adaptation of "Endless Blue" almost immediately after I posted the last day version. It took me a few tried before I arrived at something worthy to post though. My first attempts were far too dark.

I hope I didn't go overboard with the lights in this one. As with the day version wanted to take what I had done before and turn it up to 11.

Let me know what you think. I hope to have multiscreens soon!!

"Perfect desktop background"
This is a great desktop background, there is just enough interesting stuff around the edges that it still looks nice when it's obscured by a bunch of windows. But when you're done working and minimize things, there's the island - time to party...

Pot of Gold (Night)
"I had always planned on making a night version of "Pot of Gold" but I underestimated how much trouble I would have doing it Vue d'Esprit. Most of my "glowing" work is created in Lightwave.

I did finally manage to create something interesting in Vue but after nearly 5 days (!) of rendering I aborted the scene. Instead I decided it would be better all-around if I recreated the pond scene in Lightwave for my night version.

I hope you like the result!
