This is a recent example I had visited this location a few weeks prior and the light wasn’t great but I visualised what it could be if the conditions and light came together so on returning when the light was right here is the result

Welcome to Blogging Rod. Love that you chose WordPress and not Blogger. I can hear Penny cursing me now at that comment :-p . As you can tell I found your blog through Penny. Love the banner on your blog. I have always enjoyed your work when Penny showcased it on her blog.

Are you inferring you work for MAD magazine?

As for the first installment, Rod, they are some of my sentiments too.

Totally agree with your previsualisation thoughts, I have plenty of them….. I just strugle with the connectivity between my them and the sensor. Too many short circuits 😀

Good luck with the blog mate.
