The Future of this Blog

The Future of this Blog

The mist is clearing and I’m beginning to see the future of this blog. It will continue but in a slightly different form.

What you won’t [...]

Masters of Landscape Photography

Masters of Landscape Photography

Over the Christmas break I bought a new book “Masters of Landscape Photography”. I would love to say I was featured, but alas I have been overlooked once more.
