The Golden Room

No-Man’s-Lands Journal Day 1 (Travel Diary Day 264)

1,000 miles in 2 days – Betsy had never been pushed so hard. We headed north, leaving Montpellier for drier climates, believe it or not, in the UK.

Our return home, although forced upon us by poor weather, is still a welcome relief. Being surrounded by familiarity is always nice, but it’s also a reminder that I’m never particularly comfortable with the the idea of too much familiarity. I usually need a change of scenery fairly quickly before boredom sets in. I have a child’s mind – it needs constant stimulation.

We hope to be flying to South America in the next 4 or 5 weeks, after which we’ll travel to the US where I hope to teach some HDR workshops with some very talented HDR photographers over there.

In the meantime, I’m hunting for landscapes and places of interest in the UK to occupy myself and my camera with.

One huge benefit of being back home in sunny Newcastle is that I can put more time into developing the free educational content of my blog. I’m looking forward to creating a large selection of written and video post-processing tutorials.

Feel free to pop by regularly.

This is an HDR created with 3 handheld brackets, processed in Photomatix and selectively edited using advanced luminosity mask selections.
