Ryan's Notes:The very first night I spent in San Diego (back in 98 or 99 I believe), I had dinner at a place in Pacific Beach called "The Green Flash". The name intrigued me and I found at that the "green flash" refers to the green color the sun takes on just as the very last bit of it disappears below the horizon.
I had the opportunity to return to San Diego recently to visit with old friends. This wallpaper is my homage my old home in the west and the years I lived there.
I used Vue d'Esprit's "planetary" mode to allow me to place clouds (and the sun) beneath the horizon line so I could create godbeams from beyond the curve of the earth. Tricky to set up and it took forever to render (to clean up the noise) but you let me know if was worth it.
