At the moment I am being made a contact by a lot of different people. I like to look at the pictures of my contacts, review them, add comments and favourite the ones I like. This takes some time to do properly, this is why I haven't made you all into my contact straight away as I currently can't keep up. But please bear with me I will endeavour to look at all your photos and give them the time that they deserve when I get down the list of people. I am very grateful to you all for stopping by and leaving your kind comments. It really spurs me on so thanks.

    "Richard is a wonderful talented land artist whose work is inspiring, creative and feeds the soul. I love looking at the sculptures he has created and reading his words of wisdom and more often than not humour!

    Richard has given me so much encouragement to create land art of my own, he has huge patience and dedication that are a credit to his work. Thank you Richard."

    "Escher is a wonderful land artist and photographer. Do look through his Flickr site. His book - "Land Art" by Richard Shilling - is excellent, so do buy a copy and support him by voting for the book!"

    "He is certainly the best land artist you can find at Flickr. It amazes me how he builds his sculptures up using just natural elements. I find his art very complete, as it plays with volumes, lines, colours, textures, movement, etc. His creativity has no end! But that's not all, he can also take good pics of his work so we can admire it!"

    you make my day with your artwork and imaginative ideas------i have made pebble piles on and off for years when the moods take me,specially when the children were small and we were at the beach for the day.....playing with something that has a 'feel' all of its own.
    Stones,pebbles just lie about doing nothing and to see your creations just makes me smile as i come across them.

    anyone looking for different sorts of shots then welcome to the world of escher1...................come on in and check out his pictures.

    They will amaze you.
