Thanks very much Katarina and Jeana for your kind words they are much appreciated. I was out this morning for a scout around to see what I could see to shoot when I saw this wheatfield scene with the dark clouds approaching from the front and with nice lighting from the side and back so out came the camera and tripod and into the field I went. Glad I did now.

Hi there Ed,
Great to hear from you. As you often point out on your site at - www.edheaton.com - it is all about the `light` and I wholeheartledly agree it makes a big difference. I trust your workshops are going from strength to strength.
