Earth Revisited Art Print
I took this photograph in 2012 while on a road trip around America. It was taken in Rocky Mountain National Park, we had driven to the top, and this was the view when we got up there. I have edited the photo in Photoshop, adding in vibrant colors, to create the “Mutant Nature” style.
