Back to Light on the Landscape Photoblog

Welcome to my new PhotoBlog!

As you can see, my new photoblog is up and running!

The blog now matches/blends in with the new web design.  My goals are the same –  to share my thoughts on landscape and nature photography in general, as well as sharing information specific to my own photography.  I will continue to include links to the work by other photographers I find inspiring, plus products and resources that I find useful.

Please update your bookmarks, RSS feeds, etc.

The photo included was made in my backyard pond.  When I noticed the pattern that the pads form, I visualized a B&W photo.  This was unusual for me, but since John and I developed the Meditations in Monochrome ebook, I am “seeing” in B&W more often.  I also made dozens of color frames on Saturday and Sunday.  Sunday was especially good since it rained here!

I look forward to your comments and feedback.

Be sure to “follow” me on Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter too!

  1. I just wanted to say that I found %BLOGURL% via Goolge and I am glad I did. Keep up the good work and I will make sure to bookmark you for when I have more free time away from the books. Thanks again!

    Bill, I like the nice clean look of the blog and your website. Congrats to John too. I see you are using PhotoShelter. Is that working out well for you?

  3. Dave,

    Bill’s assistant, John, here. Glad you got the RSS feed to work, but I wanted to mention to others that I changed a preference for syndication that should’ve fixed the problem with the “AddToAny” widget. I’ve just tested it with Google Reader, and it seems to be working fine, but if any one else out there is using Google Reader, or any other reader, and seems to be having problems, please let us know.

    Thanks,
    John

    David – it seems you are right. I just resubscribed using the RSS URL provided at the bottom of the page rather than via the widget at the top of the page and I now see the images correctly. Looks like the “AddToAny” widget may have a problem adding to Google Reader.

  5. The images do appear in my RSS reader (Safari browser). The issue is more likely the end user’s problem with their particular feed reader, and not this wordpress blog.

  6. Dave, Still looking for the right WordPress preference so that images show in RSS. Hope to find it soon. Any knowledge on that?

    Thanks, Clay!

  7. Good point, Dave! I am sure that we can fix that today!

    The new blog looks great but I have one problem compared to your previous site at http://web.me.com/wgneill/wnblog/PhotoBlog/PhotoBlog.html – none of the images appear in your RSS feed. For those of us using a feed reader (like Google Reader, for example), it means we have to click through every post to see the photography.

  9. I really like how you are incorporating your blog in with your web site. The new site looks awesome, and I will look forward to continuing to be subscribed to the blog. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, expertise and time… it is very much appreciated!
