POTD: Big Mike

Big Mike Bozeman, Montana 2012

A little pictorial fooling around with a shot I took of Big Mike who stands in front of the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman. Big Mike is the first life-size bronze sculpture of a T. rex in the world. It was cast from a skeleton found in eastern Montana. Interestingly, while this hunk of bronze weighs in at 10,000 pounds, that’s actually about a full ton less than what Bike Mike himself weighed when he was alive.]]>

    1. Thanks Tom, it’s kind of fun messing around with such effects, although I always worrying about crossing the line into too gimmicky territory.

  1. It can be a fine line indeed, but you didn’t cross it! It really added a great feel and nice texture to the image.
