Springtime in Tomorrowland

Springtime in Tomorrowland by Paul Hiffmeyer
One of the things I love about shooting in Tomorrowland is the blending of horticulture with futuristic architecture. In this case, the Astro Orbitor at Disneyland park is the perfect complement to a Flowering Pear tree on a foggy California morning.

I was there last week and got some excellent photos with the cherry blossoms in the foreground. Loved this shot and agree that there is always something neat to capture at the park!

that’s a beautiful picture, i definitely like the blend of the plants with the futuristic tomorrowland entrance. i’ve been going a lot and trying to do the same with taking random but good pictures. im hoping to get a job as photographer for the park someday, and seeing photos like this are inspiring :)

Try taking the Columbia coming out of the fog sometime, on the rivers of America. Got a really neat one a few years back

I absolutely love your photographs Paul! They are absolutely beautiful! Is there a way to set your pictures as a desktop image? I can’t seem to find a way if it exists. Thanks!

Chris.. I agree! Great Photos… this one now sits on my Desktop.

For a Desktop Background; in Windows and using IE simply right-click on the photo and “set as background”. To adjust it, you then right-click on your desktop and go to your desktop properties to “Center” (or tile or stretch if you prefer). I prefer Firefox which when setting as a background from the browser, it allows you to make adjustments on the fly. If you right-click on the image before it’s enlarged, you can “set as desktop background..” and you’ll get the smaller image. For the larger image, you’ll first have to save it to your desktop. In Firefox, Right-click on the SMALLER image (this page) and “Save Link As…” and you’ll end up saving the LARGER image instead. You can then drag and drop it right on to an IE or Firefox window, then use the instructions above from there.

Be sure to respect the image copyrights (per Disney’s Terms of Use below) and use it only for your personal desktop background and not for public websites.

Great work as usual Paul! :-)

Lovely shot!
The Astro Orbiter looks like a face from this angle. Like a futuristic titan.

Would have looked alot better if the flowers were in color while the rest was black and white imo
