Please check out the new 'Horizons' gallery i recently created for 18 of Phil's best images, and get some ideas on how you might bust out of your rut.

      Better with the words. The intense color and the closeness needs something to set it off.

      The virtue of the camera is not the power it has to transform the photographer into an artist, but the impulse it gives him to keep on looking.
