Landscape Photography of Kim Keever

I enjoy seeing good landscape photography, so when a friend recently sent me some photographs of Kim Keever's work, I was a little stunned.  In many ways they looked more like paintings than photographs.  But perhaps even more curious is to realize that there is no digital manipulation of these photographs.  I was amazed.

So how does Keever achieve these stunning colors and beautiful atmospheric conditions without Photoshop?

Well basically, he creates miniature landscape scenes in a 200-gallon tank in his studio in New York City.  Keever illuminates his tank with colored lights and fills the aquarium with water.  To create the atmospheric effect, he adds paint and then swirls it around to achieve the cloud-like scenery as he photographs the quickly changing environment.

It looks like he is still living (Google search gave current dates for his work), so I suppose he could make digital changes plus create the scene.
