We’ve hit the new year, so what now?

Well in the traditional sense, we make commitments that we believe we can stick to, and try our best. After reviewing the extreme success of the last year that my wife and I have had, I feel like perhaps it’s time to push things even further, increase the challenge and see where it stops.

I’ve been informed that if I can develop a calendar in a style of work I can do, going off of my portfolio, I’ll have 5000 guaranteed sales for 2014, so this is one objective. Have 20 images of publication quality for October.

The second of my challenges has to be to finally get around to finishing the learning to drive thing. I suppose it’s a must and will make life easier.

The last of the three challenges I’m aiming to complete must be the personal, and I mean completely personal goal of hiking Ben Nevis, in Scotland, it is nothing compared to what I’ve hiked before, but never have I hiked a mountain so big in my own country. It feels like the time to commit myself to actually performing this action.

Bring on 2013!
Hope it’s good for everyone else.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise

Hi guys,

I missed out last weeks photo challenge because I was both stumped with what to throw up on the blog, for delicate. I did have a few ideas, but no time to pursue them. I have however got an image I’m sure we can all love, and it’s of a friendly gofer who used to live by our house.

Surprise: Well I don’t know about everyone else, but when ever you see these fellas popping up and looking at something, they always look surprised in my opinion.




If you’ve found this post through a search engine, go and have a look at the official website which issues the weekly challenge and join in. http://dailypost.wordpress.com/



Weekly Photo Challenge: Changing Seasons

For this week, changing seasons seemed to be the theme selected, and it along with the author of the original blog, reminded me instantly of a specific image taken from a while back. One of those caught in the moment snaps I’d taken whilst out on a final hike for the season.

The photograph depicts the perfect transition the trees take from green, to yellow and finally through to being leafless. It is a high dynamic range image, so auto-bracketing was used but the honest truth was, that without this feature I don’t know if the image would have captured the colors being displayed, so well.
