If these photos remind you of paintings, they’re supposed to. Photographer Alfonso Calero was inspired by the paintings of Mark Rothko when he made this series of landscapes using a variety of techniques.
The photo above shows Brush Creek rushing across a wide beach at low tide near Port Orford, Oregon. It was snapped at the base of Humbug Mountain a little past sunset on November 28, 2011. Venus and the waxing crescent Moon are conspicuous in the twilight sky.
