Last night I came home and found an envelope from the UK in my mailbox, making me smile.

Upon opening the parcel, my smile turned to a slowly mouthed 'wow', as I viewed the finely crafted print I have been sent by John Edwards [aka UKJohn].

Entitled: 'Erratic, Yorkshire Dales National Park', the image shows an enigmatic erratic poised against the horizon out on the karst. The soft sky frames the distant hills while the sharply detailed subject and foreground celebrate the textural richness of this hardscrabble limestone landscape. The subtle split sepia/selenium toning -so hard to do well- provides a richness to the scene completing the balanced arc from fieldwork to final print in hand.

My hat is off to you lad on this marvelous work, which I am proud to have in my possession.
