I wanted to share something beautiful with you today- a blog that truly inspires me each and every time I visit. Although it's not directly craft-related, the magic and beauty in each post really gets my creative juices flowing.

The blog is called Stuck In Customs, and it's a celebration of the absolute magnificence of nature, cities, history and the world we live in.

Using a photographic process called HDR, or High Dynamic Range (for which you'll find a tutorial here), photographer Trey Ratcliff manages to capture elements of the world in a way I would never see.

I adore visiting this site and getting a good kick up the creative butt, and I hope you will too!

Ooh, mucho thanks for the tutorial link. With the combination of my posh camera and impending OS holiday it's lovely to have a new technique to experiment with! Of course, I can't afford to by any specialist software so I'll only be able to make the 'clunky' Photoshop HDRs the writer despairs over. :-)

P.S. I've been having trouble commenting on your blog lately - the confirmation word thing takes forever to load. I sometimes end up abandoning a comment after the page has spent a few minutes loading with no result. But maybe it's just my slow old laptop?

P.P.S Finally got a confirmation word after reloading the page four times!
