    Last night, around 12:00pm, all hell broke loose. Plonk…plonk…plonk on the roof. Suddenly, the hailstorm burst and hammered down. I had a look but couldn’t see much in the dark. All went quiet, and then some heavy showers were on and off. Just after seven this morning, I opened my curtains and, whala!

  • Photography 101: Landscape

    Landscapes generally focus on wide, vast depictions of nature and all of its elements, from formations to weather. In this genre of photography, you won’t find much of a human presence: nature itself is the subject.
