Happy New Year for 2011

Graham Leggette made comment a while ago that he rated this Orangutang shot of mine as one of the better shots of 2010, so I thought I would post it as a happy new year image to both celebrate the passing of 2010..phew…and welcome in 2011.

2010 for me has had a number of challenges, but we have managed to rise to all of them, but I am kinda looking fwd to 2011 all the same!

My blog is now approaching 100,000 hits and in the new year Flemming Bo Jensen, alias Bomont, Bomontaruny, Mr. Bo Jangles and Flembot is going to put together a website for me to be able to sell images on line. So next year is going to take my photography to a new level and I welcome that challenge. Thanks for the assistance Flembot!

Thanks also to my little buddies Christian and Mike Fletcher for all their support last year. I always enjoy our adventures and there will be many more to come I am sure!

A special mention to Brent Pearson also for his tutoring and advice with off camera flash etc, thanks mate.

Thanks also to Tony Hewitt and Peter Eastway for their tutoring at Karijini.

And last but not least are the bloggers…yep you guys out there. It is a very strong community that has risen to the occasion a couple of times this year to assist other bloggers. The community will only get stronger as the numbers grow and with additional people coming into the community so will additional benefits and ideas.

It was great to see a heap of you on board the True North last Australia Day and hopefully we will get to see you all again this year, with perhaps a mix of new players. It will be a great day with a number of prizes on offer thanks to Team Digital and Rodney Thomas and his new rip stop bag. Rodney the man himself is flying over specially for the event so come along and meet the man and find out why these bags are setting new stds in camera bags!

So enjoy tomorrow evening and bring on 2011 I say!
