Glasshouse abstract

Which way is Up? This image was shot as part of a ongoing project called Man versus nature. Most of the time the way man uses nature. it's very Ugly, but occasionally when everything comes together it can also be very beautiful. At this particular angle the reflection in the glass, the yellow tree when light was added, it became a very beautiful image as well as confusing to look at. nonetheless it does catch your attention.

The high speed hook up

With today's technology it isn't hard to get some cool effects straight out of the box,a d3, sync cord, and SB 800, will get you more fun in the sun, add a little water, kids and well, instant masterpiece.
