Over the years I’ve spent a lot of hours writing articles for Photography Magazines like Outdoor Photography, Amateur Photographer and others but I’ve also spent a huge amount of time building up the articles on this blog. Most of them are not one or two words and I have hoped over time that this provides some help and inspiration to others. So when someone else comes along to drop a gong onto this work in appreciation for some of that effort, I’m not going to hide it away…

The thing about the internet is that the best parts of it expand horizons, help and coax people into positive action. Needless to say it’s a double edged sword with mis-information, plain lies and its much darker side. I’ve used endless resources for help, guidance and plain inspiration down the years and in the same way as I hope a part of my photography inspires others, I also hope this blog is of some genuine use, otherwise well what’s the point?

Like most I don’t write these blogs to get paid, I don’t earn a penny off these pages and I’m strictly small fry in internet terms, so the odd bit of recognition is nice. Which is why out of the blue when I received an email from Feedspot informing me I was considered to be in the top 75 Landscape Photography Blogs, I was very happy indeed to pin their Muttley Medal to my pages. Yeah, why not.

I would like to personally congratulate you as your blog Russ Barnes – Art Of The Landscape has been selected by our panelists as one of the Top 75 Landscape Photography Blogs on the web.
