The mighty flat mountains

posted by Jason Kottke   Aug 06, 2009

I love JK Keller’s Tatamount project.

Photographs of mountains are computationally altered to flatten the mountain’s elevations, while an ocean horizon is altered to mimic the mountain’s original topography.


In the comments, he mentions that the effect is done with a combination of JavaScript and Photoshop…which I didn’t even know was a thing. (via today and tomorrow)
