Merry Christmas from ADNW

| December 23, 2011

I want to take the time to thank all of you that have participated in the ADNW blog this year. Getting to know some of you through the challenge and various comments has been a true blessing. Creating pictures of beautiful things and places and sharing experiences with others that have mutual passions makes the effort I put into ADNW worth it.

The photo above is one you may have seen before from other photographers This is how December 23, 2011 started for me and I am glad to share it with you. In the foreground is a portion of the famous Garden of the Gods and in the background is our very own 14,000+ ft. mountain called Pikes Peak. This overlook is about 30 minutes from my home in Monument, Colorado.

I hope your holiday is filled with love, joy and happiness and that it provides a memorable beginning for a happy, healthy and prosperous 2012!

Take care,

    Happy New Year and thanks for providing us with such great photos, travel info, challenges..all those things that made all of your fans have an interesting year! In terms of portrait photography: as someone who loves to paint watercolor portraits, you’ve taken out all the highlights and lighting that we so desperately need. The best shot for us is when someone’s standing beside the window, inside, and they get ambient light and highlights on the face that we can use to shape the face! Do some naturally lit photos for us portrait painters and make it one of the coming year’s challenges for the heck of it. As I said before though, thanks for everything you’ve done for us all year. We love your blog and look forward to reading each entry! Happy 2012.
