Everybody enjoys seeing beautiful images, but getting the back-story directly from the artist adds another dimension. That's certainly the fun of the story behind this image by landscape photographer, Ed Heaton.
While there was obviously time dedicated to Ed's visualization and capturing this image over several days of shooting, it's the sidebar story about the circumstances that demonstrates one of my favorite traits about him, his sense of humor. After listening to the sound-byte, imagine the fun you'll have on a workshop with him, along with how much you'll learn! He's got five pretty amazing locations for workshops coming up yet this year.
Ed and I met through his affiliation with Tamron USA as an Image Master. You'll find more about him with a click on the image above as well as his Tamron Image Master page.

Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
