Well ... thank you to everyone who visits my site regularly for being patient as I finished the new site layout. I accomplished almost everything I set out to do and a few things I had no idea I wanted to do. Some things I thought were important ended up not being so important and new things were discovered along the way. I think what I am most stoked about is that I built this theme one hundred percent from the ground up, it is xhtml and css compliant and I learned some new tricks along the way. I still have some work to do on the archive page and minor tweaking here and there, but I just could not bear to go another day without posting.
As far as this image goes it is from the archives, but one that had a lot of power and drama hidden inside of it. As I was building this site template I had a "revelation" in hdr processing ... you know one of those moments where you are doing something unrelated and the idea strikes you in a moment. So this is the first image I tried the new technique on. It needs to be refined, but what I wanted to accomplish was accomplished.
Now that I have most of this behind me I will resume posting images daily, visiting everyones photoblogs and commenting and paying some attention to my wife.
