In many of these images two types of terrain meet. Sometimes they just clash, stopping at a wall where the other starts. In other images they interfere, merge and colors and textures of water, trees, crops, and soil change. We see events too slow, too big and too subtle to seen on the ground.

We see the random beauty of rippling water, algae and lava flows, the absurdity of a round-about in the desert, the alien effect of snow covering machinery and farm land. We are lured into a point of view that shows human activity as a bold but crude and interesting growth on the earths surface. Almost as a natural phenomenon.
