    An ode to successful landscape photography

    I like taking the mickey out of things I do
    Here's something I came up with to keep things real !

    "I would do anything .....


    I waded neck deep in icy streams
    Sweated a gallon in desert storms
    Fended off bears with barely a wound
    While shooting one handed ,one inch from the ground
    For that stunning, unshot point of view
    I would risk tearing a sinew or two

    I found piece of nature’s heaven
    Photographed and filmed this secret location
    Kept this bolted in my securest of closets
    While others ask and fail in order to covet
    For me to reveal these amazing shot-opps
    I would run overpriced exclusive workshops

    I googled and youtubed for tips from the best
    I yahood and trolled for the best of the rest
    Became a pirate, my ship riding torrents
    To a luminous land masking the currents
    For a taste of my skills in adobe CC
    I would sell my soul in the form of CDs

    I facebook, twitter and stumble upon
    I like megashot, the universe and even earthporn
    I cry with joy when they share my pics
    Suck up to the pros with online licks
    For a few extra likes and shares and maybe some faves
    I would befriend every Mike, Bill or Dave

    My pic is front paged, my affection has soared
    I conquered the mysteries of flickr ‘explore’
    I spend my time cutting and pasting
    Instead of shooting, I'm time-wasting
    I liked your pages , you’s are da bomb

    All that and more if you want to "make it" in the pro world. Then somebody comes along right place right time with the photo of the year. There is nothing wrong with taking the mickey out of yourself; if you don't we will hahahaha cheers Brian

    I was giggling away as I read this at work and actually laughed out loud when I got to the Flickr explore part- now my boss thinks I find work very funny....

    Not much for poetry.... yes an area Im planning on improving, but... I looked at your website. Wow, you are really good. The lighthouse (pyramid thing) shot is ridiculous. I am not one for false flattery either, Im blown away.

    Hi Adam - thanks very much - I don't think I'll see conditions like I did for that shot down at robe often if at all again
