I began this year with the intention of making 'something' of my photography. Entering contests, responding to calls for artists, looking for opportunities to publish, hopefully to make some sales - and all that in addition to continuing to develop my skills and knowledge. This blog, started just two short months ago, was to be part of that effort. I picked up some followers here and there and discovered some folks whose work I enjoyed following and learning from. The blog was bouncing around 50 to 75 views on days that I published a post. I don't publish daily though I have considered it. I figure we're all busy enough without being inundated with content that we could have easily skipped, so I try to limit my posts to those times when I have something to say.
Yesterday, my blog went slightly 'viral', at least here on WordPress. My post, Submerged, was the featured Photography post for a short while and was featured on Freshly Pressed. Views jumped exponentially, many of you took the time to leave comments, a number of you elected to follow my blog. For that, I want to say thank you. I hope you continue to enjoy your visits here.
This image was a 2 minute exposure, something conditions don't allow me to do very often. There were a few clouds and a good stiff wind moving them across the sky - perfect for this sort of shot.
