Upstairs Downstairs

Lenticular Sunset

I’ve got a new outlet for my photography: the ImaGeo blog at Discover magazine. ImaGeo is a visual blog focusing on the intersection of imagery, imagination and Earth, with spectacular visuals related to the science of our planet, and an emphasis (although not an exclusive one) on the unfolding Anthropocene Epoch

The photo above is from my second post. It shows what meteorologists dryly refer to as a “lee-wave lenticular cloud.” The post includes another image of this remarkable atmospheric phenomenon (a 180-degree panorama, shot with my iPhone), and an animation of satellite images showing what the formation and dissipation of these cloud formations look like from space. It also includes some explanation of how these things form. So head on over to ImaGeo to take a look.

I’ll be posting compelling imagery three or four times a week. When it seems to overlap with what we do over here at 5280, I’ll do a little cross-posting, like this.

I hope you enjoy ImaGeo!

  1. First off, congrats on the NatGeo gig. I guess when National Geographic starts poaching your people, you know you’ve arrived.

    [Ahem] Also, great shot. Their standards for photography are notoriously high and the fact that they have signed you on is a tribute to the quality of your work.
