Hi, and welcome to Blue Pond Images. Over the years I've come to realize that the latest/most expensive camera gear does not guarantee great pictures. Though to be fair, a high quality lens will often make a difference. Many mobile phones and small compact cameras can produce amazing images as can be seen on the various social media sites. Personally I rely heavily on perseverance and trying to be in the right place at the right time. I know they're a hassle to carry about, but a sturdy tripod is a 'must have' for consistancy with landscape photography. I simply wouldn't leave home without mine.
Sometimes I'm astonished at the hues in the evening sky after the sun has dipped below the horizon. Worth hanging around a little longer before heading home..

I've assembled a blend of nature close up and macro work along with landscapes. Also included, a small ensemble of other work. Hopefully, there is enough variance to satisfy the interest of most viewers.

Several years ago I designed a photographic aid, The DEPSSI card. This little device has become indispensable to many outdoor photographers, myself included. I'm proud to say, that it received excellent reviews in the photographic monthlies. As a point of interest, I used a Depssi card to assist with hyperfocal distance settings with virtually all landscape images here (including river scenes).

Prints are available in the gallery section and with a few projects ongoing, why not visit again to see whats new....
