Blue Ridge Rhododendrons

It's rhododendron season in the Blue Ridge Mountains!

It's been a while since I added any photographs. I'm not that good of a photographer, and I've focused mostly on CGI work lately. But I just took a drive up along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina, and I got a number of photos, especially of the rhododendron in bloom. At this point I plan to offer only one of them for wallpapers and prints, but here are a selection of them for your viewing pleasure. These are available as-is for screen wallpaper (i.e. I'm not going to resize them for all the screen sizes, but you're welcome to resize them for your personal use).

Cwm Solitude

I like the word “cwm”, the way it's spelled and the way it sounds as well as the meaning. I would love to have a solitary retreat in a cwm like this. But this is my digital artwork, not a real place.

April Showers

When I was growing up in Japan the cherry blossoms would bloom just in time for my birthday in early April. It was a windy time of year, and there would often be showers of petals falling.

This is what you would see if you lay down on the ground under the cherry tree in my Cherry Tree Concerto scene.

A Winter Night's Dream

What could be more peaceful and refreshing than a quiet winter sunset?

This is my digital artwork, not a photograph.

Snowflake Globe

This is the final and most “traditional” of my seasonal snow globe scenes. This is what the landscape around here looked like a week ago. Today was 75° F, so this helps me remember it is still winter out there!
