Of course, there will always be those who look only at technique, who ask "how," while others of a more curious nature will ask "why." Personally, I have always preferred inspiration to information.

[The Nature Photographer] belongs to that rare category of people who put beauty before profit and contemplation before interest - people for whom beauty is profitable and contemplation is a fundamental attitude for the enrichment of life.

Climb the mountains and
get their good tidings.
Nature's peace will flow into
you as sunshine flows into
trees. The winds will blow
their own freshness into
you...while cares will drop
off like autumn leaves.

You've got to push yourself harder. You've got to start looking for pictures nobody else could take. You've got to take the tools you have and probe deeper.
