Hommage à Stephen Hawking (vertical)
This image was created on a summer night in 2017 the Olympic Mountains. In March of 2018, I received a call from the daughter-in-law of physicist Stephen Hawking. Hawking had just died and she was looking for an image to represent Hawking on a set of greeting cards that would be mailed to people sending condolences from around the world. I worked with her to design and print the cards, using this image. The caption on the cards was an excerpt from one of Hawkings' quotes: "Remember to look up at the sky, not down at your feet."
Jupiter Rising (horizontal)
This image was created on a summer night in 2018 in Eastern Washington. I had the great fortune to have learned the location of an abandoned farm in a place with minimal light pollution. The weather was perfect, with clear skies and no moon, and Jupiter just peeking ov
er the horizon. I walked in the dark along a dusty track, about a quarter mile from the main road, with the only the sounds of night insects and birds to keep me company. The herb-y smell of dried grass and weeds following with each step until I crested a hill and saw the outlines of this lovely structure against the deep blue sky. I used a flashlight to illuminate the foreground as a compositional contrast to the line the Milky Way cast across the sky.
