Morning Freshness

Apart from being called the golden hours for photography, early mornings are also the best time to capture the liveliness around you.

NO SUMMER’S countryside walk would be complete without a few butterflies flitting about. Even those not keen on bugs and little critters can’t help but like ‘flutterbys’. They add grace, beauty and a splash of colour to our gardens, meadows and woodlands — they also prove irresistible to outdoor photographers! However, being small, active and very mobile, capturing good butterfly images can

Tiger Woods has his name etched on the hosel of his Nike Method putter and his initials on the back of his VR Pro blade irons. So too has fellow Nike staff player Charl Schwartzel. Rory Mcllroy has RORS stamped on each of his Titlist Vokey wedges. The Mitsubishi Rayon Diamana shaft on Rickie Fowler’s driver once featured the Oklahoma State Cowboys mascot.

Reflecting on the Edge

Trained in common sense, Elizabeth Opalenik was raised on a farm in western Pennsylvania and left home to the sound of peace marches and her mother saying, ‘I knew you were different from the time you were two.’ She evolved as a photographic artist from former lives as accounting manager for a major corporation, manager of a jazz club and as ‘A Ms-Placed Lady’ created her own construction business.

After a two week photographic workshop at The Maine Photographic Workshops in 1979, she sold everything, changed careers and never looked back. No regrets. Her art,

Let’s get something straight: small spaces don’t have to be boring. In fact, they are often more interesting than bigger spaces. As you can see from this month’s bold cover*, it’s about thinking big and using your imagination.
