Where Are the Words?

On occasion you see something so breath-taking you don’t have adequate words to describe it.  It’s jaw dropping.  Stunning.  I had that experience when I first saw the HD series, Earth, on Blu-ray.

I appreciate Philip’s willingness to share how he does this with HD-DSLRs. It’s so helpful… Continue reading
