    Fence composition is amazing! Takes a lot of experience to see and wait for that.🙏

      Hi Ray. Great to hear from you. I guess it takes a rancher to appreciate fences!!You no doubt have put up hundreds of miles of fences, but did you think of composition as you went along??? Hope to see you one day soon.

    Congratulations on another fabulous series! Erin and I LOVE the burned sage brush with shadow. Amazing. We both totally understand and appreciate your comment on the experience of freedom once crossing the bridge. A different world. Thank you for sharing!

  5. Hi Chris. Your descriptions of where the inspiration comes from and your thinking process are very effective teaching tools. Plus, you images are just a joy to look at. I’ve got new ideas and I want to run out in the fresh snow with my camera – in Tuscany no less!

    Thank you for sharing your gift with your many followers, Chris. I’m inspired by the beauty and artistry in every newsletter. The profoundly simple fence-posts-in-snow image is glorious, as if the particular cant of each post had been ideally designed for the shot. Love your vision.

        Hi Chris. Michael and I are doing wonderfully well. We moved up to Cobble Hill village in 2016 and opened a pottery studio for Michael combined with a shop called Two Hoots Gift Gallery. If you and Rita are in the neighbourhood on your next Vancouver Island visit, we would love to see you both. Best, Anita

    Thank you for your calm or exciting images. Freeman referred me to you when we spoke (wrote) moons ago about Haida Gwaii. We will go this August! The Multiples and the lines are grand.

    Stunning and moving as usual. Images and touching tribute so held by your heart, which is beautifully and vibrantly present in your winter scape photo expressions!!!

      Thank you Karen. I received a beautiful letter from Fred’s son Greg. He is not doing well, but he was able to read the tribute and see the images. Wonderful. Chris

    Hi Chris, I remember Fred and his encouragement to look for line and shape. My heart reaches out to him. I love the two fence image captured with patience and trust that the sun’s rays would light up your composition and your heart. The forest images speak to me in waves of energy radiated by the trees. Thanks for all you do to awaken the creativity in all of us. Be well, Love Adbhuta 💞

    Wonderful to hear from you Adbhuta. Fred is in a care home now but he read my tribute. He remembers our trip well through the Spatsizi. So many amazing experiences we have shared over the years. Drop by if you pass this way. I always look forward to seeing you. Chris
