    Well deserved Kudos to Benjamin!

    Terrific coverage of this incredibly beautiful and most definitely, fragile landscape.  Some of the photographs are extremely artistic in a pure aesthetic manner – and I love that. Thank you for enlightening us with this important information and illustrated with a collection of fine art photography.

    Kind regards,

    Lance A. Lewin

    Cracking stuff, Ben! I was with you nearly all the time, yet somehow my efforts don’t seem to come close to yours. You must have had a better camera…

    I realize this was written with tongue in cheek, but it reminds me of my favourite quote regarding photography (author unknown but appreciated): “Why is it that if you buy a violin you own a violin, but if you buy a camera you’re a photographer?”

    And yes, Benjamin’s work is very well done.

    Mike.

    “Why is it that if you buy a violin you own a violin, but if you buy a camera you’re a photographer?”

    Or, as the photographer said to his host when leaving after a dinner party, “Thank you for a wonderful meal. You must have a fantastic oven”.
