Frozen Inferno by La-Vita-a-Bella
Remember last July when I asked for help in naming one of my photos (that would be published in a book) by having a contest to win 500 points?…

:iconerozja: was the winner with Frozen Inferno

The book is finally out and on bookshelves!
Published again by La-Vita-a-Bella

The book is called Surreal Photography: Creating the Impossible.

It is a how-to book, so every image in the book has instructions on how to create the image from start to finish. My image in the book is one of my infrared images. In the picture above, the finished image is on the left and the original image in on the right. In subsequent pages, there are instructions of what I did to achieve my final product using Lightroom.

Needless to say, I'm pretty excited :dance: :boogie:

As a side note, this is the tree that I recently wrote about that is no longer least it lives on in this book. :D


Life is beautiful
Artist | Photography
United States
I believe that the world is full of beauty and I enjoy capturing images that are full of color. In 2005, I took a drive by myself into the Cascades. Equipped with my first digital camera, I stopped and took pictures of whatever caught my eye. Since then, I have studied photography on my own, taken thousands of images, developed my style and invested in better equipment. My main passion is waterfall photography, but I can be found photographing everything from animals to architecture and even some studio work. I live in eastern Washington and many of my photos are from Washington and Oregon. The love of my life, Jack, and I do as much traveling as we can. Most of my photos are taken during our trips and many of our trips are now planned around what photos I’m wanting to take. What I enjoy most about photography is that it utilizes both the creative and technical parts of the brain and that there is a never-ending amount you can learn.

Current Residence: Washington...the state.
Favourite photographer: Ian Plant, Art Wolfe
Personal Quote: You can't leave footprints in the sands of time if you're sitting on your butt.
