Mt. Shuksan, Picture Lake
by Emilie Trammell

Photographic Art
Location: North Cascades National Park
Camera: Nikon D90
Lens: 18-105mm lens

As if the mountain view wasn’t enough, God added a little lake in front of it to provide the most perfect reflection!
Mt. Shuksan is derived from a Skagit Indian word meaning “Rocky and Precipitous.” It’s a glaciated peak composed of Shuksan greenschist, oceanic basalt that was metamorphosed when the Easton terrane smashed into the west coast of North America.

An Evening Sunset
by Monica Engeler

Traditional Art
Dimensions: 14 × 17 inches
Medium: Acrylic paint original on paper
Corrective Post-work: on the scan of original, with Photoshop CS5

This idea came from my on going series of rolling hills. Somehow I always fall back to these type of images. I love mountains and nature. I think my Swiss background has much to do with my constant realistic style in art.

by Terrie Taylor

Digital Art
Dimensions: 3056 × 3123 @72dpi
Medium: Photographic Montage, artist own photographs and stock image
Background image taken in Enumclaw,Wa.
Software: Photoshop Elements 8 and Kaleidoscope

We all have an impact on our earth and it is up to us what that impact is. We can destroy it or choose to give back before our earth decides not to give any more to us. Before we can grow no more food, have no clean water, no breathable air or not see all the beauty that at this point still surrounds us.

If a Brown Cappuchin could speak….

Message to the World
by Elisabeta Hermann

Traditional Art
Dimensions: 5/7in
Medium: Acrylic on Canvas Paper

The message of this painting is the one of LOVE to the world…my LOVE that I send around to everybody, on the wings of the butterfly…:)

The inspiration for this painting was my strong desire to express the thoughts of “how much we need LOVE now”.
Looking around to what is happening in the world, I see a scaring reality; I see tears, blood and sadness.

WE NEED LOVE MORE THAN EVER!!!

Please, EVERYBODY…we all have to spread the LOVE!

Developing Paradise (updated)
by rocamiadesign

Digital Art
Dimensions: 2048 × 1536 pixels
Software: UltraFractal 5 and IrfanView

“Developing Paradise” was inspired by all the construction we have seen, here in the Flathead Valley. Land in the Northfork of the Flathead River, which was once held in trust by the Forest Service, has been sold off, piece by piece, and homes are being built on it. This is land that is directly across the river from Glacier National Park. This branch of the river has been popular with rafters and kayakers for years because of the challenging waters and the pristine view. Pretty soon, they will only have that view on the Park side of the river.

Wouldn’t it be nice if somebody could design homes underground, with just a small entry showing on the surface? I know they have the technology to put in windows that appear to be looking outside. This way, we could keep the beautiful wilderness and still have a way to house the growing population.

Wet And Green
by sfmilner

Photographic Art
Location: Wasatch National Forest, Utah / United States
Camera, Lens: Nikon D40 with 18-55mm GII lens
Settings: 18mm ~ 1/6’s ~ f/3.5 ~ ISO=200
Tripod / #2 ND Filter / Polarizer / RAW

Water is the major component found in our bodies. In our solar system, water makes our planet unique. It grows plants and trees that replenish the air we breathe. It provides all living creatures with sources of food or habitat. Water can even power the electric devices of our modern world. Water is taken for granted, as we witness its continual pollution and waste, knowing that with out the simple benefits it provides we will all die. I know this knowledge is understood by most of us, but do these thoughts come into your mind on a daily basis: when refreshing your thirsty body or taking a warm bath. When I sit by a mountain stream of cold, clean water and hear the unique music it makes as it spills over moss covered rocks in between the countless thriving plants it nurtures, my mind always ponders the importance this most finite resource brings to us all: of the beauty of pure, clean water.

Noah’s Ark
by billyboy

Digital Art
Dimensions: 3840 × 2560 pixels @ 300 ppi
Medium: collage of 26 of my own photos
Blending and editing done with CS3

My own photos, were taken in and around the Algarve, Portugal; Boulder, Colorado; Sanibel Island and Orlando, Florida; and my home in Belgium.
The elements I used in this collage were taken from the most beautiful places I have been to on this planet.
The oncoming storm warns that we need to act swiftly if we’re going to save and preserve this priceless beauty that is presently at such deep risk.

FIRST LOVE SUMMER LOVE
by Tammera

Digital Art
Medium: Composite Stock Photos and manipulation
Software: Photoshop CS5

This artwork has been done with the intention of promoting Earth Day… April 22

This is my question:
If we continue on this current path, way of thinking and treating the natural resources that mother earth provides…

What are we leaving our children?

The simple joys of contecting to the earth, that a child experiences weather it be on sandy soil at the ocean, rocky terrain in the mountains, forest floors or dessert…nothing can compare to our connection to the earth.

For our children….let us all consider each and every choice we make, daily, in a reverant and serious manner, and help in protecting our children’s inheritance.

PARADISE GLORY 3
by Tammera

This image is especially done for a good friend of mine who is an avid bald eagle image collector.

Having given calendars to family and close friends, he noticed there were no eagles in it!!…

And so this and the next few eagle images I do will be dedicated to a good friend of mine…
