The original Digital Photograph:

I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.

    Nice one, James, can we see the original too?

  • Thanks Sue ! The original shot has been added now. There were lots of great cloud formations yesterday, though I would really have preferred glassy waves and blue skies.
