I changed the leaf textures from "Canopy Creek (Summer)" and replaced the leafy underbrush with golden grass. I wanted to make sure to keep some green leaves visible here and there to note that the transition to fall was not yet complete.

Looks like Ents dancing.

I love your autumn scenes!

"Autumn Like it Should Be"
This is wonderful. Everytime its on my screen, people stop and ask me where I shot the photo and are so surprised to find out it was generated. I always tell 'em where I got it and how wonderful all the rest of your stuff is...Thank you for making being trapped at a desk a better experience.

This is my favorite of the Canopy Creeks. I love the colors and the atmosphere this one brings. A beautiful rendition in my favorite season; thanks Ryan!

"Split it yourself Rob!"
Would take several minutes tops.

"Canopy Creek"
Very nice. I only wish it came in 3840x1200 with split files (I have 2 machines I run at 1920x1200 side by side).

"Canopy Creek (Autumn)"
This is gorgeous! I love the light filtering through the trees :)

"What an incredible sceen!"
I loved the original canopy creek but this autumn sceen is just spectacular. Great work!

"Canopy Creek"
A really neat Autumn picture! Just the right blend of color and light. Almost as good as " October Flame ". It totally changes the nature of the picture from the regular version. If your main Autumn project is better than this I can wait!

"Canopy Creek (Autumn)"
really nice...

it's a peaceful calm autumn afternoon forest scenario..

great work Ryan!

"heavy with color and delight"
After all the rain we've had here, this makes me remember what Autumn is suppose to look like! Thanks!

Very nice work. Love the warm feel of it. This subscription is worth every cent!

Breath taking, beautiful and taking me back to memory lane from high school. Thank you, Ryan. This is why I keep subscribing to DB.

Thu October 15, 2009 at 11:06 pm

Beautiful. It'd be great just lying down in a small boat, looking up at the trees as you're drifting downstream with the gentle current. Very nice, Ryan. Thank you. Mmn.

"Good Work"
We like it!

"A place I'd like to visit"
I've loved your work since I was introduced to it about two years ago. Of all of your work, nothing has captured my imagination the way this particular piece has. Every detail in the terrain and treeline is an important one; even the break in the treeline in the back leads me to wonder what is beyond.

Thanks for doing what you do. It may not always seem like it, but putting in the work you do and sharing your imagination with us is appreciated. I hope you're earning enough to support yourself and to support continued time in this project.

or the headless horseman riding his horse through the stream carrying his pumpkin head w/ flaming eyes.... or you know you're the artist ;)

Wed October 14, 2009 at 11:19 pm

Your best autumn pic ever, I think.

Wed October 14, 2009 at 11:13 pm

"I agree with JK"
Something like "Forest of the Shades - Halloween 2006" with the red eye peering out...

Wed October 14, 2009 at 8:07 pm

"Q&D Halloween version of this?"
IT seems to me this would be a good starting point for a quick and dirty Halloween version of this? Make it night, add some ghouls and whatnot...

Wed October 14, 2009 at 7:16 pm

Gorgeous! I cannot wait for the winter and spring versions! The summer one has always been one of my favs, but this is competing pretty hard for the spot. Thanks so much for blessing us with your considerable talent! :-)

Wed October 14, 2009 at 4:39 pm

absolutly beautiful. goes perfect with the current season. it puts me in an autumn mood whenever I look at it to!

Wed October 14, 2009 at 1:22 pm

"PNG please"
The link to the png file is dead. Please fix that :)

"Dualscreen File"
I've posted a new dual-screen file. The original was corrupted due to some problems I've been having with my internet connect recently.

Wed October 14, 2009 at 9:13 am

"3200x1200 Corrupted"
I see some others are talking about corruption issues. The 3200x1200 dualscreen image is suffering from similar problems.

Wed October 14, 2009 at 8:04 am

This is one of my all time favorites now. Really relaxing to watch this version. I'll be looking forward for the winter version if it comes to happen.

Wed October 14, 2009 at 8:03 am

"love it. "
Captures the mood very nicely.

good work!

Wed October 14, 2009 at 5:14 am

"the turning leaves"
The endless sandy scenery here is completely void of trees to which one can enjoy the beauty of Autumn. Thank you for yet another captivating view that has me dreaming of home. I miss the smell of the forest, the lush green grass, and the sound of the trees gently blowing in the wind.

Wed October 14, 2009 at 4:35 am

"I need more monitors"
awesome picture, but the multi screen version is a lot better than the 1080 version. You can see a lot more of the color variations.

Wed October 14, 2009 at 1:26 am

"Larger dualscreen errors"
it looks like the larger dual screen version has some rendering errors on the bottom. just a heads up.

Wed October 14, 2009 at 0:03 am

"Canopy Creek Spring version"
I would love to see a Spring version too. While Autumn is my favourite season, down here in Australia we're now into our Spring.

Tue October 13, 2009 at 10:22 pm

I think this is among my top 5

Tue October 13, 2009 at 7:42 pm

"My Favorite Season!!!"
I was anxiously awaiting a fall scene. This is great!!! Thank you!

Tue October 13, 2009 at 7:41 pm

Awesome pic. Love your nature scenes, especially when the seasons change. They're always very befitting of my moods. This one in particular is phenomenal. Can't wait to see the one that's rendering =)

Tue October 13, 2009 at 5:32 pm

"Great Idea!"
I think that adding new additions of wallpapers is a great way to fill in the gaps between the new ones! On another note, I totally like the idea of winter and spring versions of this. I actually can't imagine how you could make a spring version more "springy" then the original Canopy Creek, but it would be interesting to see how you would change it.

Tue October 13, 2009 at 3:24 pm

"On multi-screens..."
Is a multi-screen version of "Enshrouded" still in the pipeline, or did it continue to fail? That has to be one of my favorites!

Tue October 13, 2009 at 2:41 pm

Nate F
oddly enough, just this past week i had been looking through all of your previous images and i looked at canopy creek and thought "an autumn version of this would be great", and poof there it is.

a wonderful image i must say, and the idea of winter and spring editions is a very good one. last year i remember you had an image that several fans wanted a seasons version of but you stated that it couldn't be done because of the way the tree was constructed (not full behind the leaves i think).

this is definitely going in my top 100 DB images. (that's why i noticed the original last week, i was busy downsizing the amount of files on my PC).

Tue October 13, 2009 at 2:28 pm

"Seasonal versions = yay"
I change my computer themes based on the seasons, and for some reason quality fall wallpaper is hard to find. Except this new one made me happy since my old wallpaper was stale. I'd like a wintery version of this...

Tue October 13, 2009 at 1:14 pm

"Leaf Variations"
I did add some variation to the leaf colors (note the 2 in the filename). It looked a little too busy when I varied it more than it is now though.

The multi-screen will have more yellows and greens.

I could definitely do winter and spring versions. Sounds like fun!

Tue October 13, 2009 at 1:11 pm

I second the other two versions of this render. With a current rating of 8.75, it seems many feel you did a great job. Canopy Creek was splendid, this autumn version is splendid, and a set of four would be four times as splendid!

Tue October 13, 2009 at 12:45 am

"canopy creek"
Too many reds for me... Any chance you can render the leaves in multi-colour?

Keep up the great work!

Tue October 13, 2009 at 12:03 am

"Autumn Canopy Creek"
Well it just so happens that I love this time of year with all the fall colors on the trees and the comfy cozy feeling of the cold weather setting in and having hot chocolate and the like. When I first saw this wallpaper I was excited because I'm always looking for more autumn wallpapers. I find this one interesting, in the sense that it almost has a dark feeling to it. The colors are beautiful, but then you have the dark side of the picture and it almost gives that walking alone at night in the woods feeling, (maybe that's just a me thing). This is not bad and I'm glad you were able to render such a great wallpaper. As always Great Job Ryan! Keep up the good work.

Tue October 13, 2009 at 11:54 am

"Lazy hazy days of autum"
It's got a different, relaxed feel for an autumn landscape. Al least from my New England perspective. I like it.

Tue October 13, 2009 at 11:14 am

"Sun Angle"
You're correct that I did not change the light angle. If it's a different time of year then the angle should be different.

I thought it worked so well in the original I didn't want to monkey with it (other than changing the color).

Tue October 13, 2009 at 11:10 am

"A Warm New Approach!"
I find this render much more relaxing than the summer version, which presented such a powerful "green" mood. It is a little weird that the sun beams are at such a high angle, but I'm not bothered by that. The whole atmosphere of the piece is fantastic.

Tue October 13, 2009 at 10:08 am

"Sun Angle?"
Awsome looking render, I at first thought it was too orange-ish but it kind of grew on me.

The only nit I have to pick is the angle of the sun. To get that color light it would need to be late afternoon. Yet the sunbeams (lightsource) are only about 15degrees off vertical.

It would be awsome to see what a result of lowering the angle to maybe no more than 20-30 degrees above horizontal would do. The lower edges of the trunks and branches would catch the full sun and provide a nice contrast to the dark of the other side?

Awsome work though Ryan! Been a fan for years. Makes me glad I have opted for that lifetime membership.

"Canopy Creek, Autumn"
I really like this one. It somehow "Feels Right", especially during this time of the year. Part of this may be that I grew up in a rural part of Northwest Georgia, where my father had a hay field that bordered a slow flowing creek, covered with a canopy of hardwood trees, just like in your image. This creek was at the base of Lookout Mountain, and during the autumn, the colors of both the creek and the mountain were phenomenal. I used to love going there in the Fall. Thanks for the reminder.


Will you be doing a Winter and a Spring Canopy Creek? I have always liked your "Changing Seasons" sequences of images, and this one would be a great addition to that group.

"Looks amazing!"
Ryan, that looks great! I can't wait to see the multi-screen renders!

Tue October 13, 2009 at 8:13 am

I like the rich orange colors in this image. Can't wait for the dual widescreen version to be done!

Tue October 13, 2009 at 6:46 am

"A little Variation"
Sure maybe these could be all the same types of trees... but even the same types of trees do not all change to the same color at the same time... we need some variation in colors... some green, red, orange, yellow, etc.

Tue October 13, 2009 at 6:35 am

"Nice But.."
I really love your autumn scenes but this one is just a little too orange/red. There should still be some green on the trees especially if there are a few evergreens in the mix. Not all trees turn at the same time. Of course Im still going to put this on my desktop because its awesome.

Tue October 13, 2009 at 5:15 am

:D <3 autumn renders

Tue October 13, 2009 at 0:27 am

"Dig it!"
Thanks Ryan! I've missed your seasonal landscapes you produced a few years ago. I don't know if you'll ever do anything like that again, but I like this!

Mon October 12, 2009 at 11:39 pm

Thanks for this version of Canopy Creek. Living as an expat in Singapore I miss fall.

Mon October 12, 2009 at 10:15 pm

"All I Can Say Is "WOW"!"
I'm the guy that has been "tough" on Ryan lately, but this piece just absolutely grabbed me. Anyone can look at this piece and immediately recall a moment of peace in their lives. Thats "ART". At least that's what it did for me. Great Job Ryan. Love It. Awesome.

Mon October 12, 2009 at 10:07 pm

Thank you for fixing them! And I must say this is a lovely image to tide us over -- I wasn't expecting another so soon. Terrific render; it's going to immediately replace "Red and Gold" as my fall wallpaper.

Mon October 12, 2009 at 9:31 pm

"Autumn Scenes"
Your autumn scenes are absolutely my favorite. I love this one and I'm looking forward to the new one and the multi-screen for this one. Keep up the great work!

Mon October 12, 2009 at 9:30 pm

"Love it!"
It's working fine for me now. I love the fall version of this one a lot!

Mon October 12, 2009 at 9:27 pm

I'll just reupload all the files. I'm trying out a new FTP program and I think it's causing the errors.

Mon October 12, 2009 at 9:23 pm

1600x1200 is also messed up -- half of the image is blue. I love this render, though.

Mon October 12, 2009 at 9:21 pm

"Another error"
Most of the 1440 x 900 version is messed up. Scene looks amazing though.

Mon October 12, 2009 at 9:14 pm

A little typo caused the file errors. Everything should be loading properly now.

Mon October 12, 2009 at 9:10 pm

"Canopy Creek Autumn"
By the way, I got the errors too, reloaded the screen and the links were fine.

Mon October 12, 2009 at 9:08 pm

"Canopy Creek Autumn"
Very nice!

Mon October 12, 2009 at 9:07 pm

The resolutions are listing properly now, moments later! lol

Mon October 12, 2009 at 9:05 pm

No, it didn't crash. Just wanted to post this for you guys to check out I work on the new project some more.

Mon October 12, 2009 at 9:04 pm

"something wrong"
Something's wrong with the new images page - errors listed for the resolutions. Resolutions list fine in the comments page. Links work fine.

Mon October 12, 2009 at 9:04 pm

Did your rendor crash? Shame if it did because it looks amazing!
