Nature Photography Magazine

This photo was just published in the current issue of Nature Photography Magazine. The photo was taken at Wilder State Park in Santa Cruz. In the background you can see across the Monterey Bay. It was a very clear day. No Photoshop here, that bee is real! It took a lot of patience and rolling around in the grass to get that photo but it was well worth it.

Aperture 2.0

I've been using Aperture 2.0 for two weeks now running a few thousand files through it. I'll be writing up my review of it soon, but in general I would recommend existing users of Aperture 1.x to upgrade. The performance is way better and the RAW 2.0 engine has been greatly improved.

You can purchase Aperture 2.0 from Amazon link below to help support this blog. It won't cost you anything and it's cheeper than buying it from the Apple website.
