I am a 42-year old husband and father. I was an avid computer gamer and DOF, F-stops and the like were foreign to me until my wife introduced me to photography.

I began shooting during the latter part of March 2010 and quickly became addicted to it. I started this blog to share my journey and to learn along the way. Special thanks to my wife Eng who encouraged me and to all my friends in Blogosphere who shared their knowledge and taught me to further this craft.

An imposing photo with such an "artistic" sky, that seems alive!! I already know what's behind your back.:)

Mojo

Okay color me officially envious. Who wouldn't want Stonehenge available for a photo op? Around here we'd be lucky if we had Strawhenge or Woodhenge. ;-)

Love the light, love the various hues of yellow and green in the foreground, the stones (of course) and that sky is to die for! Wow, what a brilliant photo, Dave!

it is fantastic ... the clouds are great ... did you see the druid behind the third stone? it is really magic ...

That's one of the best photos I've ever seen. I like the string of people on both sides. I only ever went once in the pouring rain and it was foggy :-( but Avebury I saw in all its splendour. Marvellous shot.

We've all run out of superlatives. This majestic structure has been well honored by your photo. Love the Wiltshire plains and all it has to offer.
