Today’s blog image takes us back to the dunes in search of sensuous curves.  This is a personal favorite.

I wanted to pass along a very good read.  A tremendous landscape photographer, Ian Plant has published a very good eBook titled,  VISUAL FLOW about composition.  I have found it to be as good or better than most books about this subject.  Its filled with good examples and wonderful images.  A bit pricy for an eBook but worth the money and it looks great on my iPad!  Highly recommended.

    $25 for an ebook!?! Is he serious????

    Fabulous image, John. If sensuous curves were what you were after, you found them in spades. Top-notch work.

      I thought the same Shaun, however, I went ahead and bought it after reading its a full 240 pages. So its not a typical eBook. Worth it to me.

    Awesome shot, Ian’s fabulous! See ya soon!

    OK, Sir. I shall investigate further. I am just not accustomed to associating ebooks with $25 price tags. I do, however, agree with KLM that Ian is “fabulous”, at least in the photographic sense.

    This is just the kind of image I call a Lyrical Landscape – wish I took that one! Gorgeous!!

    This is absolutely beautiful. Probably one of my favorites of this series.

    Wonderful image, John and very inspiring as I continue to process my images. The dunes was probably my favorite part of the trip. Well, next to eating all that food!

    It’s a really beautiful shot, and I like that it is one of your favorites. BTW, can I borrow your iPad?
