Welcome to tomorrow. It's 2010; a New Year and a New Decade. It's a good time to look back over the last year; the trips, the images and the people. What a year I had! Thank you to all of my loyal followers (and there are many of you).   My new year's resolution? to get out and shoot more, learn more and share more with you here at Nature Photography Blog .com.

I'm renewing my annual subscription to software tutorials; probably a workshop leaders best kept secret! Ever wonder where we learn all about Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, Aperture and just about any other software out there?; software tutorials is probably the most valuable investment I make each year.
