I would not exactly call myself a Photographer, I just happen to love my surroundings and share what I see. Had that unexpected...

Out Of The Blue.......

In all of my short time and experience of photography, this art never ceases to amaze, fill me joy, disappoint, baffle and humble me (sometimes all at the same time!).
I was invited to join the All About Your Best Work group so I submitted two images that I thought were “up-to-scratch” after a lot of decision making! The two I settled on were my Time & Tide and Across To The Mountains images.
A really nice surprise to be invited in any case.

Out of the blue, I received the most amazing and humbling compliment I think I have ever received on any of my work from Brendan Schoon, one of the hosts of the group. He had nominated it for the Pay It Forward group and what a stunning comment he wrote about my image.

I’m not a person who receives praise comfortably – in fact, I get tremendously embarrassed. I really don’t know what to say or how to act but all I can do is say a heart-felt THANK YOU!

I have to share what he wrote about my image:

“It took a little time till I had found the work I really admire! The work that really makes me silent for a while, the work that I won’t forget so easily!
I like this work because of the B&W tone, the usage of the foreground. The bush is reflecting perfect in the water and creating so much depth in this shot, the white snowy mountains at the background which are giving me the feeling Wish I Was There!!! Truly an amazing work! Had to nominate this work.”

I will certainly “Pay It Forward”!

Huge smile!
