2008 was a busy year.... elementalproject.com was born which allowed me the pleasure of travel and many stunning subjects. Places where one can meet Mother Nature. Sometimes I found her and other times she found me.
These are my favourite images from locations and environments that pushed me and equipment to the limit during 2008. From my back yard in rural south Leicestershire, UK to the magical Norwegian Arctic circle, the dusty plains of USA, the scorching heat of Arizona and the eye of an Atlantic Hurricane. Thrills, adventure, excitement, achievement and lots of hard work.
