  1. Greetings from Canada :),

    I stumbled upon your blog just today (about 3 hours ago) and I have since been reading post after post. Your writing is clear, your pictures are amazing and your advice is extremely helpful. I just wanted to say thank-you for the great posts and please keep ’em coming!

    Thanks again,
    Adrienne Ackermann

    • Adrienne,

      Thanks for reading and for your kind words. I’m happy my images and posts are helpful to our neighbors from the north. I promise not to sing “Oh Canada” (even though I know it by heart in both English and French). C’est Vrai


  2. Dear Jeff,
    Keep up the great Posts. I look forward to your posts every day.
    One thing to keep in mind on your blog stats is that not everybody actually visits your blog but I am sure that many follow it closely. I follow your blog via Google Reader.
    Looking forward to many more posts and great inspiring images.

    • Thanks Maury,

      I’m not all that concerned about my blog stats but I do expect to hit 1 million page views this year. Not too bad for a Texas photographer. 🙂
