It's been far too long since I posted anything new, but I've been neck deep in html code, screen grabs and writing the latest tutorial, ‘Landscapes: creating dramatic skies’ – full details of which are available here:

http://www.chromasia.com/tutorials/online/

As for this one: it was taken this afternoon at Rossall Point (near Fleetwood). I met up with Alistair (www.digiphotology.com) and we spent a happy couple of hours wandering along the beach. After spending the last week doing nothing but coding, actually managing to leave the house and wander about in the fresh air was an amazing pleasure.

And on the basis that the new tutorial is all about creating dramatic skies, that's what I went for here. If you're interested, I've put a copy of the (rather less dramatic) original image here:

And finally: I'm away from the 17th to the 30th of this month but have scheduled four images to be posted automatically – on the 18th, 21st, 24th and 27th. I'll have loads of new material when I get back, so should be able to resume daily posting (or something close to daily posting). If you have any queries about anything, please contact Libby. Her email address is libby at chromasia dot com.
