    Great photo work. My work is landscapes of the eastern Appalachian range. Born in WV and have lived in NC for 23 years now. Mostly a landscape artist but enjoy macro. Did a lot of macro while teaching Biology. Slides were easy to use in the classroom. Now I do print work for picture /frame sales. Thanks for you training programs. They help a lot in area I need refreshing. Keep up the great work. :)
