    I have people make fun of me because I do exactly that….I never, ever go anywhere without my camera. We live out in the country on 100 acres so even when I walk to the end of our driveway to get the mail I have my camera. I’ve been asked if I take it to the bathroom with me and the answer to that is no I don’t, but I take it everywhere else. If by chance I do forget to bring it a feeling of dread comes over me, the same feeling like when you think you’ve lost your wallet. I’m afraid that will be the time I’ll have a moose or bear walk out into view! I even garden with my camera within reach 🙂

    Nice shot there Dan! How far down was that person rappelling?

  • Jill says:

    Great tips, Dan! The only photo training I have. It will never take me pro, but I’ve been quite happy with the results.

  • Rick says:

    Great words to live by. You can share a shot that was never taken.

    Nice music stuff, too. I didn’t know you were a musician.

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Thanks Rick- Yes, I’ve been playing guitar since high school and have a degree in music production and recording engineering.

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Sometimes just having your camera with you is all you need, Jill!

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
