as photographers we should all be extra sensitive to light, in all of it's forms, but must remember that it is the shadowplay which delineates form.....
from my stainbank walkabout, some tree textures
X100S@iso4000. decide to a "back2basics" and revisit the f16 rule of exposure calculation.
the camera shows no artifacts at iso 4000 so in bright sun a shutter of 4000 may be used thus is no tripod territory and a joy to walk with....
from a walkabout around the stainbank nature reserve just outside durban
camera" X100S @iso4000
Wishing you all a Joyous and Peaceful New Year. Stay focussed if that is/was your intention and above all HAVE FUN..... 
  • Listening to: equilibre (cullen/manring)
  • Reading: nothing special, just too busy.
  • Watching: all that moves and doesn't move
  • Playing: my"ladies" pearl and arabella (fretless basses)
  • Eating: eating and drinking more healthily
  • Drinking: pure water

My definition of a photograph is a result of the emotional reaction to the scene in front of my camera. I love the abstraction from reality that monochrome affords me. To me there is no difference between a photograph and a panting, the former works in pixels the latter in brush strokes, both are a form of communication.

thank you very much.  natural dew on a flower is a blessing and everything in nature is in abundance.  That flower seems to 'smile' broadly when the dew is upon it.
