I made this image on Friday before the big winter snowstorm hit us on the weekend. I am thrilled with the photo, and have many other versions to process, but just had to share this one! BTW, I used my trusty Vari-ND for this new Impressions of Light image.

Also, I have reduced the cost of my PDF ebooks to $5.00 each! I have not changed the prices on my web page so you have to click the Buy button to see the new price. Please share this with your friends! Hope the cart is working right. If not, let me know!

Enjoy,  Bill

  1. Seriously underpriced – maybe.

    I just downloaded Meditations in Monochrome, to complete my collection of your ebooks. On the once-through-quickly it looks nice. I’ll chew on it over the months to come. But the price… I’d easily pay $20, when I decide that I want such a book. $10, $15, $20 wouldn’t make a difference once I decide I want it. That would be in my “price of a pizza” category. But then, I had previously decided that I wasn’t going to get that one, at least not last time I was buying. But when you dropped the price to $5, it was just a matter of how long it took me to find the time in my schedule. “Price of an ice cream cone” does not have to make it past my budget censor. If I want it, I get it, no deliberations needed.

    So, I value the ebook way more then $5, but the price was such that I spent the money when I hadn’t before. (That $10 price was making it likely, but $5 pushed it over into the “just do it now” category.) May you make a big wad of money from however you price things.

  2. It’s funny. As I look at this I seem get the same feeling that I might have if everything were tack sharp. I am relieved of examining every little thing for sharpness, though. It seems to capture the essence of the scene with the parts that would not contribute.
