alanis: Clouds and shadows on Mars, photographed by Mars Express, 24th May 2012.
Between 28 and 36°S, 284°E, on the arc of highlands that surround the southeast Solis Planum. The crater split between the 2nd and 3rd images is Voeykov, about 75 km across, named for climatologist and geographer Alexander Ivanovich Voeykov (1842-1916). The small, deep crater toward bottom left of the 4th image is Los, named for a village of about 400 people in Gävleborg County, Sweden.
Composite of 3 visible light images for colour, and 5 monochrome images for animation. Colour is not balanced naturalistically, and the slightly psychedelic colours of the clouds are a result of mismatches between the images where the clouds have moved between exposures.

Without black there would be no light which is one of the striking qualities of Oscar’s portraits, in which he brings together abstraction and the figurative"
Artists are these men and women who are capable as everyone to perceive the Reality, but they have an unusual capacity to express it.
Their perception of reality helps us enrich our own perception. That’s why they are maybe necessary.
There are artists along History that decorates our lives, as IKEA, with an enveloping art that leads us to the sweetest geographies of our existences.
There are another artists that open us a door to dark and unexplored territories, breaking the fears,
facing the unknown and showing some of its sides. They expand our freedom.
In this list of pioneer artists, lucid minds and breakers we could mention Goya, Picasso, Duchamp,
Baselitz, Kafka, Stravinsky, Diaghlev, Brecht or Gaudí, so to mention, not casually, some of them.
His only certainties are his doubts and his big capital, his authenticity.
Oscar shows us a work which is painfully honest, intuitive, intelligent and essential.
