Ryan's Notes:I created this image as an ode to the time I spent fishing with my son Ian after he broke his arm in the spring of 2010. We had just taken the training wheels off of his bike 4 weeks prior and he thought he had acquired enough skill to pull off some radical skid maneuvers. Unfortunately pavement can be a harsh instructor.
We transitioned to fishing and had a very mellow spring. I'll never forget it. I rendered this image using Vue d'Esprit. It's one of my first large scenes to use Vue's built-in DOF blur.
