Win a Free Book at Frederick Van's Place

You can win a copy of "A World in HDR" over at Note, if you can somehow evade his haunting stare, you can then leave a comment to win!


Fred is a an awesome guy, and I've really enjoyed getting to know him. We hung out together in Northern California a while ago and got along like a Starbucks on fire. Take some time and visit his blog... he's got all kinds of good stuff on there. Also, he recently interviewed me for an upcoming This Week in Photography, which I will link to as soon as it goes live!

Daily Photo - The Rainy Forest in Hakone

Hakone is a wonderful and remote part of Japan. The bullet train only took me so far before I switched to a smaller series of trains to get me out to this spot. It is nationally known as a place for rest and spiritual relaxation. I was already on vacation, so I decided to double down and take a vacation from the vacation and super-relax. I spent the day out exploring places like this before retiring in the evening with the most intense hotbaths of my life.
