The “Martian Winter” series is one that took a while to reach fruition. I originally started playing with HiRISE photos of Mars from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter in the Fall of 2012. I experimented with many different photos, mostly processing them through Photoshop and the FilterForge plug-in Your Fractal Art . I created many interesting images, but nothing that hung together as a series, so I regretfully shelved these experiments, though I didn’t forget about them. A year later, as I began to contemplate a 2013 Winter series, I came across those experiments again. One of them caught my eye as having the right color palette for a Winter series, so I fired up Filter Forge once again and subjected one particular photo of Mars to a great deal of abuse from a particular Filter Forge filter. The results were wonderful, so I brought them into Photoshop again to apply the finishing touches.
