Who would have thought just a few short years ago that a relatively unknown landscape photographer from Texas could inspire folks to visit his blog over 1,000,000 times?
Certainly not me and I’m suitably humbled and awed that y’all enjoy my images of Texas as much as I do. I’ve published over 850 posts and displayed over 2000 images from around this great state. I’ve enjoyed reading over 4500 comments and NOT reading over 12,500 pieces of spam.
I’ve made some great friends through this blog and gotten to know hundreds of folks I would have never known if not for the power of WordPress and Twitter. I’ve expanded my commercial photography business into markets I’d never imagined just a few short years ago and shared my love of the Texas landscape with dozens of folks that traveled here for the Texas Landscape Safari.
But most of all, I’ve learned more about myself, my profession and my craft than I ever thought possible. All through the daily interaction with folks like you that visit here for just a few minutes of enjoyment and inspiration.
YOU are the reason I write, share and display my vision of the great state of Texas and from the bottom of my heart, I thank you all.
Pretty amazing, Jeff!
I only recently discovered your blog, but your photography has been inspiring. You deserve your success.
Jeff, in a perfect world, we receive what we give and you certainly deserve this and more. Your images are always inspiring, your articles are informative and your support of fellow photographers is abundant. Of course you have this many visitors! Congratulations.
I have visited Texas 3 times and really enjoy seeing your photos of places that I have been. Your Big Bend and Pedernales state park photos make me want to come back for an extended photographic vacation.
Thanks for reading. Texas always welcomes folks from around the world. Stop by Houston and say hello anytime.
Just stumbled across your blog while searching details on Canon STE2. I’m very impressed, no wonder you’ve clocked up that many visits. Congratulations, I will certainly be returning in the future.
Thanks for reading and for your kind words.
Jeff, congratulations for your achievement! I cannot say I am a regular reader, but I am hopping on and off. Stay productive in a for you comfortable way, stay healthy and safe on your trips.
From Westfalia, Germany, Bernd
Congratulations Jeff! And thank you…
Your Milestone comments were very much appreciated, and your stated milestones and the bar chart were certainly impressive. I look forward to your photo posts each week, finding your sense of what makes a fine photograph very much to my taste, and at the same time I learn. In your three shots of Big Bend’s Secret Garden, I thought the first shot of the three downright wonderful, and what made it so was a somewhat mysterious yet real quality that is hard for me to put into words. I could almost feel that image viscerally
Thanks for reading and for your kind words. Big Bend National Park holds many spots of intense beauty and some of quiet wonder. This spot, hidden at the base of the “Window” is my favorite.
Thank you Jeff
De nada my friend!
