Mountains peek through the clouds at a spectacular sun.

Altitude

1024x768 Size: 214 KB

I have registered 'Terragen' and this is the first of many new landscapes I will be adding.

Archipelago

1024x768 Size: 295 KB

This started out as one of many experiments in creating waves, but the waves became secondary as the islands developed.

As The Crow Flies

1024x768 Size: 156 KB

Interpretive symbolism, what's it mean to you?
This image was created entirely in Bryce 5.

Aurora

Aurora

1024x768 Size: 152

Solar particles react with the earth's magnetic field around the earth's poles to produce dancing lights in the night sky.

Autumn

1024x768 Size: 414

This one took seven hours for the computer to render.  Apparently I went over board on the leaves.

Autumn Sun

Autumn Sun

1024x768 Size: 492

A single leaf falls amid the suns rays, simple yet poignant.

Back To Basics

1024x768 Size: 188 KB

The name hints at the fact that this image is made up of basic 3d shapes, even the balloon is a flattened sphere with an inverted cone underneath.

The Balcony

1024x768 Size: 398

The valley and balcony were rendered in two separate 3d programs, and assembled in Photoshop.

Beach Ball

1024x768 Size: 255 kb

I did this one on my laptop at my cousin's Super bowl party, I had a lot of backseat drivers drawing this one. 

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Beacon

1024x768 Size: 173

I love how dramatic this one is.  I wanted more room to better see the lighting effects around the windows, but the composition worked better this way.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Blizzard

1024x768 Size: 270 kb

A serene snow scene to soothe information superhighway road rage.  You can barely see it, but a photo of snow coved trees makes the forest appear thicker, Thanks to Dave of Dave's Photography for the photo.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Blue Moon

1024x768 Size: 260 kb

The memory of a beautiful scene tends to exaggerate the key points, trees are taller, valleys are deeper, vistas are wider, and the moon is bigger.  I used a telescopic photo of the moon to get more detail.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Blue Stream

1024x768 Size: 351 kb

The water looks so refreshing, anyone up for a swim? 

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Canyon Crossing

1024x768 Size: 412 KB

I would love to hike something like this, although I would definitely need to get in better shape first.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Cavern

1024x768 Size: 219 KB

A mysterious glow on a subterranean lake. This image started by accident, with the camera under the landscape, the strange view was too compelling to ignore.

 or 1600x1200 or 1440x900 (Widescreen)


Cold Dawn

1024x768 Size: 247 KB

The warming sun rises over fresh snow. You can tell older snow on mountains because all the thin areas have melted away, increasing the contrast.

Crater Lake

1024x768 Size: 362

The results of my first experiments with a new 3d terrain program I just discovered.  The moon was added in Photoshop.

Dangerous Waters

1024x768 Size: 151 KB

A German U-Boat coasts through a naval minefield.

Depths

1024x768 Size: 150 KB

Rather inaccessible, a large mysterious stairway climbs into the darkness.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768 or 1600x1200


Doorway

1024x768 Size: 256 kb

The landscape is not as dramatic as I first envisioned, but I like how it all came together.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Dry Season

1024x768 Size: 210 KB

This was a study of heat wave distortion using Bryce 4. I placed a bumpy glass object between  the camera and scene, for the wave like refraction.

Dune Buggy

1024x768 Size: 178 KB

The Dune Buggy, dust clouds, and shadow were rendered in Bryce, and composited into the scene I rendered in Terregen.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Eastern Sun

1024x768 Size: 358 KB

This started as a little garden, but I liked the textures of the and pots so much, what is left of the garden became a transition area.

 or 1600x1200 or 1440x900 (Widescreen)


Eruption

1024x768 Size: 330 KB

This is a combination of two images. Terragen can't yet add the smoke and debris, so I did that part in Bryce. Which came out so well, it made me want to redo the Terragen part, but I had to stop playing somewhere.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Glacier

1024x768 Size: 378 KB

I've been going back and forth working on this and another image. Apparently this one won, the other still has a few hours work to go.

Gone Workin'

1024x768 Size: 214 KB

The pier was a section longer, but the fishing rod was lost in the background.

Good Morning Sunshine

1024x768 Size: 724 KB

This image has around 300,000 sunflowers, all greeting the sun.

The Greenhouse

The Greenhouse

1024x768 Size: 293

Anybody seen the watering can? The column is made from knot parts from Steven Abbott's Knots3d program.

The Grotto

1024x768 Size: 225 KB

Wouldn't it be fun to have a basement room that looked like this? A great place for a pool party. Just don't fall in the big hole in the back yard while mowing the lawn.

Hide Away

1024x768 Size: 244 KB

Another beach scene, probably the best so far. I like beach scenes on my desktop, so don't expect this to be the last.

Hot Stuff

1024x768 Size: 429 kb

There is also a version of this image in the Sci-fi/fantasy category featuring a Gargoyle.

House of Mirrors

1024x768 Size: 188 kb

Welcome to the carnival.  I was curious how something like this would turn out, and I am quite pleased with he results.

Howler

1024x768 Size: 303 kb

Another popular moon image. Each time I put up another "big moon," I get dozens of requests for more.

Ice Cave

Ice Cave

1024x768 Size: 105 kb

Using Bryce 5's new Metaball feature, this cave is created by showing the interior of a series of metaballs.

Inland Sea

1024x768 Size: 199 KB

I never get enough of simple horizons full of water and sky.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Islands

1024x768 Size: 285 kb

Most images have one thing that slows progress.  Everything falls into place except the lighting, point of view, or as in this case waves.  It took forever, but I am glad I stuck with it.

Isle

1024x768 Size: 245 KB

I went camping over the weekend, so this was delayed a bit. I wish I could have camped on this little island.

Ivy Bridge

1024x768 Size: 385 kb

I used Bryce's terrain editor to create the bridge, and the ivy. This image might animate well with GT Ripple.

Jungle Ruins

1024x768 Size: 292 kb

This is based on a drawing I did years ago, so it's look is more reminiscent of that imagined drawing than actual Mayan temples. The Olmec head is fairly accurate. 

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Jungle Rocks

1024x768 Size: 378 KB

I had hoped to focus on other categories, but I like this 'Scenic' image too much.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768 or 1600x1200


Lake Sunset

1024x768 Size: 197 KB

This one started out with a blue sky, no mountains, and no lake. It changed slowly, and ended up much better than what I thought I was making.

Lamp Post

1024x768 Size: 89 kb

Fun with fog.

Lighthouse

1024x768 Size: 227 kb

I liked how the lenses on the lighthouse lamp affected the light, but I wish it showed up more in the final image.  Maybe I'll use it again someday.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Lighthouse Bay

1024x768 Size: 277 KB

Busy, busy. It took me a week to get this image online. I need a guiding light to lead me through my workload.

Lone Tree

1024x768 Size: 440 kb

I couldn't get much more complicated with the tree, Bryce has a limit to the number of polygons it will import. However if it did have more leaves, I think it would be less interesting.

Long Road Ahead

Long Road Ahead

1024x768 Size: 196 kb

Every journey starts with a first step. On this road, lets hope that first step is into a vehicle.

Mayday

1024x768 Size: 250 kb

My galleries need a bit more drama.
