If you love America’s National Parks, then Crater Lake National should be on your must see list. It’s an awe inspiring place with a fascinating geological history. One can easily drive the 33-mile (53 km) rim in a day and there are several vantage points to view the lake. One day I plan to cycle around the rim. Some of those grades look brutal, so I’d better start training for it now!
These images are influenced by the great WPA National Park posters. Both were created in Adobe Illustrator and used a minimal palette of under 10 colors. Solid shapes and blocks of color are used, similar to the silk screen process. It’s always tough to choose a color palette when planning an image, but digital technology makes it easy. Simply clone the image and experiment with different color schemes. Crater Lake under a full moon might be another option I’ll explore in the future.
