    I was looking at a natureprogram and got to think of my trip to Tanzania in 2012, and that i should look through my images from then.

    You sir, are very talented. I am always eager to see what you post, as you often offer some of the most inspiring work I see around here. You have a natural way of framing things that highlights the interesting without any distraction, while your processing tends to enhance this without ever going too far.

    Also, you seem to move between landscape and wildlife with an ease that I envy, often combining both for an even better effect. I've been forcing myself to carry my EM5+12-40 on my hip while I shoot wildlife lately, and I don't find it easy to switch modes in my head, even though I am often marveling at the landscape while I shoot the birds. Kudos to you for getting out there and nailing it. I look forward to your future posts.
