I prepared this true color image (bands 4, 3, and 2) from Landsat-8 data of this area from June of 2019. I used QGIS to align and size my rasters, then I used Affinity Photo to compose the RGB image, feather seamlines, and do the color & light correction.

To prepare the “relief-shaded” version, I used Blender to make a 3D mesh from 10m resolution digital elevation data and rendered that mesh with my finished landsat mosaic draped on top, using lighting configured to emulate the direction/angle of sunlight in the original captures.

Landsat8 data used:

  • LC08_L1TP_039034_20190820_20190903_01_T1
  • LC08_L1TP_039035_20190820_20190903_01_T1
