Nice post from Matt Kloskowski showing the images we all need to make, to get to the great ones.

When A Landscape Photo Shoot Goes Bad

Yesterday I posted some of my favorite photos from a recent trip. I got a lot of great comments on them (thanks so much!). Well, figuring that I can't end on a high note, I thought I'd take it a step further. 

Today I thought I'd post some photos from the trip that didn't make the cut. As I think you’ll see, so much of landscape and outdoor photography is just about being there at the right time and place with the right weather. You can be in a really beautiful place and, if the conditions don’t cooperate, take some really bad photos. Heck, as you’ll see here… you can be in a really beautiful place, with really great weather, and still take some bad photos

New FREE eBook! Light Stories: Writings on Photography & Inspiration

I am SUPER excited to announce the release of my brand-new eBook Light Stories. This eBook is in PDF format … and it's free! Yep, that's right :) Just head over to my website to download it … and please spread the word!

I've been working very hard on a new project to start publishing my own eBooks, this eBook being just the beginning, and I thought that there was no better day than my birthday (yes, it's today!) to kick things off. And … why not do it with a gift I can give to everyone?! Don't worry, though, you'll still be seeing me publish through +Peachpit, +Craft & Vision & +Flatbooks  … I'm not jumping ship on anyone, just starting an adventure of my very own. :)

We had a great day at Bondi Beach. Festival of the Winds.
I have already put it in my diary for next year.

This year I brought my Olympus OMD with 12mm F2.
Saw so many photographers I am sure we will see more images from this colorful event.

Came across a Waratah this afternoon during a bushwalk.
This only the second time I have seen this beautiful flower in the wild.
What a treat.
