So who says we have to send each other images of snowy scenes at Christmas? Not us, as we’re sending you this from La Reunion, a volcanic tropical island in the Indian Ocean, where pictures of robins, tinsel and Santa Claus seem distinctly out of place. The image above is the product of one particularly epic dawn patrol last week overlooking the Cirque de Salazie, a one-time volcanic crater beneath the 3069 metre Piton des Nieges. It has to be said Réunion is a staggeringly beautiful island with an extraordinary range of landscapes, from beaches to jagged lava headlands to rolling green fields to dense forest to soaring peaks to bleak craters to churning rivers to sylvan cascades. You will of course be able to read and watch all about our photographic adventures here next month in f11 Photography Magazine

Today though marks a milestone, as finally almost 18 months after the devastating cyber-attack that knocked us for six in 2017 we have finished re-formatting and uploading all 83 (and counting) back issues of the f11 Photography Magazine. It’s been a mammoth job for Sharyn, our rock of stability, who keeps the whole f11 project ticking over while we’re swanning around the tropics. Next, early in the New Year, will come new ways to access, read and watch the content in those 83 issues dating back to February 2012. 

Downloads of my three eBooks is FREE for f11 MembersDownloads of my three eBooks is FREE for f11 MembersDon’t forget -  the f11 Search facility makes all of that inspiration and information easily available for our f11 Members, which makes an f11 Membership of ever increasing worth, and a superb Christmas present. We've a specially priced Gift Voucher to cover the a full year’s f11 Membership, which includes an annual subscription to the f11 Photography Magazine, access to all back issues and the download of my three eBooks. And then there’s the option of bespoke one-to-one or small group tuition. Food for thought, I hope. If you want to know more, just get in touch

Meanwhile in the current and last issue of 2018, we have you for you, our loyal f11 Members, a bumper edition, starting with my How its Done feature on incorporating figures into landscapes. The Low Down continues to strive for print quality perfection by examining the role profiles play in colour management, while the Field Trial video considers the benefits of using a graphics tablet for photo editing.

Continuing on the theme my two post-production videos pay particular attention to achieving subtlety in the digital darkroom. And there’s yet another video for you this month as I chase the light overlooking one of the most distinctive features on the Jurassic Coast; Chesil Beach. Meanwhile What’s In A Picture deconstructs a shoot in the most unusual light I have ever experienced at remote Tutshi Lake in Canada’s far north-west.

And then there’s our roll call of talented guest contributors, starting with wildlife photographer Neil McIntyre, who has made the animals of Scotland his life’s work. Here, he discusses with Ailsa McWhinnie what inspires – and frustrates – him. This month’s Guest Columnist is Angela Nicholson, who reflects (sorry!) on the relentless march to mirrorless. And then there’s Wendy’s Wanderings recalling a visit to the Forbidden Palace in Beijing. Last but not least are your pictures in the f11 Members' Gallery with more highlights from this year’s Your Vision.

We here at DNP wish you all, wherever you are, a very "Merry Christmas and a happy New Year."

Keep exposing...
