No, these aren't photographs

Gregory Thielker paints some remarkable hyper-realistic paintings of rainy days from the viewpoint of inside a car. The artist explains:

These paintings became a way to explore how driving in weather shifts and changes the views outside the car as well how the driving experience informs our basic interpretation of environment. We easily understand how painting can mold cultural perception, which in turn influences landscape design to become more like painting (view points, scenic routes, etc.).
