John Grisham + Clouds 365 Project

I am very excited to announce that my image (from Year 2 of the project) “6-15-11 | Chicago Skyline After Rain” is on the cover of the new John Grisham book “The Litigators” UK Release.

Publishers, Hodder & Stoughton revealed the hardback jacket today on their website.

This is one of my favorite days from the project. Stephanie and I took a sunset boat tour while visiting Chicago last summer. It was pouring. We were not convinced that it would let up, but we headed out anyway. Huddled up, cold and soaked from the rain a hour later when it finally stopped. The boat turned around to head back. I watch the beautiful skyline clear just in time to get the shot. Glad we stayed :)

UK customers can order their copy of “The Litigators” from Amazon UK or

10-22-11 – Time Lapse Video

Time Lapse video shot in Frisco, TX the for Clouds 365 Project – YEAR 3. Beautiful cumulus clouds in the early afternoon. A front moved through a hour before sunset with layers of high altocumulus clouds and low stratus clouds moving in different directions. This is one of my favorite combinations. Produces wonderful time-lapse!

Shot with the Canon 5D Mark II with the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II lens. Shot in still mode every 2 seconds with a remote timer. Processed in Adobe After Effects. Assembled in Final Cut Pro
