Cool Shot of the Day

Vermillion Cliffs Recursion

Photo by Joy Schmoll -
Near the Vermillion Cliffs in northern Arizona is a spot called Cliff Dwellers. Sometime in the 1930’s small shelters were built into and around many of the boulders. This shot is looking through a doorway, then through a window, then through a hole in a distant boulder, of one of these unique shelters.

Light Abstacts
An addition to our "Painting with Light" article

Felipe Cretella sent us some of the recent work. Some trippy stuff there; no photoshop, no special lens, no double exposure, no camera toss.

Dylan Rich also sent us some of his light creations:





The photo above was taken in Gulangyu island, China - an interesting place, full of really old British colonial buildings. Dylan writes: "At night when the island empties, you can wander the alley ways and hear the sound of piano wafting through the shuttered windows (the island is famous for piano schools and players)"

And finally - this is an awesome light enhancement of Skoda Fabia, by JogiART:

On the Dubai Ski Resort, the same company that built it are supposedly set to build another here in North Texas. The "Bearfire Ski Resort" will have an astroturf-type surface in place of real snow. According to a news report about it a while back on CNN, it's the same surface they used on this Dubai resort. I'm sure you can find the report on YouTube.
