The Look


I have been feverishly working on getting the new design over to my coding guru to still hit my deadline for the new year but I can not help but get a bit distracted when I get eight new rolls of film developed to scan and play with. Now I have half of the film shot while on my last road trip developed, still ten rolls of black and white film to develop on my own which I need to buy some more chemicals for so I will have patience.

The above shot was just one I really enjoyed and I wanted to share it here with everyone. It was taken in southern Yosemite among the giant trees which where quiet and covered in snow the morning we explored the area. As soon as the clouds cleared from the snowfall during the night a beautiful sunlight was shining through the cracks in the trees and as the snow and ice melted the trees in the sun were steaming and foggy and made for a truly beautiful experience for YoungDoo and I, one I won’t soon forget.

I am also on the verge of having not one but two new 50ft radio mixes ready to go, just need to set aside a couple hours to mix one of the two together. I actually have a loose collection of winter/christmas songs as well after a suggestion from a reader to make a christmas mix. Anyone interested in that? Im sure I could do a quick mix of christmas music and share the link over on twitter if there is any interest. At any rate, Enjoy the photo and I will see you again soon with some great new wallpapers this weekend.

    I’m excited to see the new layout! And as far as the christmas mix goes, I think that would be a great idea.

I ask that you refrain from using any images found on fiftyfootshadows.net to create physically printed material of any kind. This includes posters, photographic prints, fliers, etc. Under no circumstances may you make a physical reproduction without written permission.

These rules also apply for any artwork or imagery submitted and shown within this site which was created by an artist aside from myself. Any images submitted and shared as wallpapers are the property of the artist who created them and in the same manner as my images, you are asked to receive permission before using them in any way aside from their intended use. Any use of these images outside of for your own personal use as a desktop wallpaper image is prohibited without permission from the author of the image.

When sharing images via your personal blogs I kindly ask that you link back directly to either the post the image was taken from or the base of the website at www.fiftyfootshadows.net and give a credit to www.fiftyfootshadows.net. Do not re-post full resolution desktop images anywhere without permission. If you would like to use an image for your blog background or something of the sort simply write to ask first. Support the artwork you admire! Also, it is greatly appreciated if you do NOT link directly to the zip files. This is more or less the same as re-posting them as it circumvents the tiny bit of support I ask of you which is to simply link back to the original post for others to enjoy the site.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
