Sparkling Aqua and Coral Snowflakes Imagery


Winter is coming faster than we know it.

I was cleaning out my closet and was inspired by my aqua snowflake t-shirt--the color, the texture, the snowflake design--so I decided to create an image based off of that. Aqua and coral are one of the best color combos so I used that as the main gradient for this picture. I also added various snowflake designs and sizes in gray and white hues. Last but not least, I wanted to give it a sparkly effect and add extra emphasis and uniqueness to the snowflakes...so noise, shadows, and a mixture of textured colors are a must.

Lake Michigan's Gleaming Night Light Reflections


A chilly, cool night doesn't stop us from exploring the gorgeous Lake Michigan from the Navy Pier. The stunning purple ferris wheel and other nearby lights create strong, illuminating reflections on the waters.

Dynamic Violet and Green Flowers in Nature


This Lincoln Park conservatory had lots of amazing and astonishing flowers--so unique that most of them seemed artificial....this Persian Shield flower was one of my favorite ones and stood out with its vibrant hue and sharp details.

Aerial Views of the Nevada Desert


Weather report: sunny skies with a few clouds in the early morning hours.

Along the way, we flew past major cities (which is always exciting) but slowly and surely..the views became interchangeable with mountains and deserts for the majority of the flight.

Until one quick moment...I spotted Walker Lake! Love this mysterious and one-of-a-kind wonder that showed up out of nowhere. It really added to the scene and I had to capture this peculiar image.

Autumn's Ray of Light: Skyscraper Sunset Reflections


The perfect lighting and glow from the mid-afternoon sunshine light--with stunning reflections of other nearby structures. I decided to add warmer tones to the photo to intensify the sunset color vibes.
