"Above the Sky"
Higher and higher we go, finding life we didn't know. An attempt to give the viewer an elated
feeling that is related to climbing a mountain, but then looking around
and realizing another life form has beat you there.
For cloud references I climbed a small mountain myself
with photographic equipment strapped to my back and then used a long
telephoto lens to get as close as possible to seeing the clouds from an
upper vantage point. I have photographed them from airplanes but this seemed
I was somewhat undecided as to whether
this piece was surrealism or fantasy art. I guess it could be either. I
did enjoy doing the clouds.
