I am glad. There are so many reasons to work in this medium, but to me it is mainly
because it is a fun craft to work with. It is about how you build the final image

Baine´s Baobabs, also known as The Seven Sisters, stand like an island in a salt pan in northern Botswana.
They are estimated to be between 3,500-4,000 years old. Their name stems from a painting by British painter
Thomas Baines, done in 1861. I parked our pick-up truck lengthwise behind one of them and it doesn´t
show on any of the photos. This gives you an idea of the girth of these girls.

Wonderful detail on this image. Great use of contrasts, both subtle and stark!
