Hey John, great read as usual. Haven't got time to read through all of this properly, as I have to get off to work. But, when I get home at 5.30pm, I'll be sure to check all this out, really interests me.
I stopped by your APN Chat the other night, but there wasn't many people there at the time. I think I'll try and stop by more often, and meet some new faces, and fellow photographers.
What are these APN galleries I here of that you have noticed, and posted these nature photos from? Sounds interesting, and I'd like to join in. Really proud of some of my latest nature photographs, and would really like to share them a bit more. :)
