Exploring South America

Newer Older

This is probably one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. I knew it was going to be pretty beforehand, but I wasn't really prepared for the non-stop grandeur of the landscapes. We chose the perfect time to go, right in the middle of Autumn. The backpacking took about twice as long as expected. I couldn't stop myself from holding up every few minutes to set up for another photo. It was irresistible!

In other news, I've cleaned up and updated the "About Me" page here on the site. That thing gets longer and longer... I'm sure it looks like I'm some kind of egomaniac! Hehe... but people keep asking me the same sorts of questions over and over, so it's kind of grown organically over time. Plus, my publisher was asking for a photo for the back cover of the book. We're leaning towards that first one... they kind of like the little story that was related to it (which, in turn, is related to this photo!).

    I had the good fortune to discover your Flickr site this morning! Your HDR work is really wonderful. Your website is most helpful! Thank you for your generous sharing of your beautiful pictures and your journey in HDR etc.
