  • Landsat-8: Denali, Alaska

    This was made from 3 different Landsat-8 scenes from July and August of 2017. I used QGIS to prep and trim all of my raster layers, and then used Affinity Photo to merge, compose, and color correct the final image. In these captures, Denali is so snowy and bright in contrast to the grassy green terrain around it, th...
