Camping, studies and trips away, all the fun things that have been keeping me really busy and away from updating this still very new blog.

So much has happened and is happening that I haven’t really been doing very much with regards updating my website.

I recently completed a few short courses through Shaw Academy so I’ve been concentrating on doing assignments and working on images using what I’ve learned in Photoshop and Lightroom. I’ve enjoyed the HDR and panorama work in both so I’ll be sharing some of those soon. I’m still on the fence with regards HDR and feel it should be done if you’re going to do it and not just hint at it. I know many will disagree. It certainly does have a huge amount of potential though and I’ll need a lot more practice as you can see.

Posts from what’ I’ve been working on will appear on the site soon.

We’ve been away as well, camping at Weenen Game Reserve, a really lovely area with lovely game drives. This is an image of the view from our campsite (a panorama using my trusty cell phone camera)

We spent a week at Champagne Sports Resort with family which was really great. Such a beautiful area with so much to do close by even if you’re not all that into golf.

There are a lot more trips in the pipeline too, hiking and camping, and i’ll be looking forward to sharing our experiences.
