As I’ve been feeling particularly biblical today, thought I’d post this collage I made from 26 photos taken around the Algarve, southern Portugal, including most of the animals from a zoo in the area. Lightning was shot during a storm from my bedroom window. Mountain scene/sky/lighthouse: Cape St. Vincent, Algarve; ship: Protimao harbour; crow: Colorado; driftwood: Sannibel, Florida… and the waterbuffalo were ambiotronic robots from the African River Safari at Disney in Orlando. Human figures on ship were drawn in with Photoshop paint tools.

I spent lots of time making sure the lighting on all the elements looked as though coming from the same source… but that rainy Belgian weather has a way of keeping me long hours at the PC… hey, it’s rained for quite a few days now without stop… Uh oh, here we go again. How am I gonna round up all those animals in time…?!

UPDATE April 28th, 2011 !!
… was just a shower in the end.
And I got a prize :-))

    Well, this is just breathtaking! My favorite of yours yet, and that’s saying a lot as I really enjoy all your work. I love the detail, like the blackbird in the foreground. Love the backstory of rainy Belgian weather influencing such Biblical thoughts. : )

    Great work! Seamless!
