The phone rings. It is Mr P, chief finance officer (and every other officer) of the On Landscape Corporation…

"How about a piece on the future of Landscape Photography?" Tim suggested brightly.

So today, in between editing, formatting cards from the last shoot, backing up, more editing, answering emails, meeting a client, and wrapping up prints, I have been thinking about the future of landscape photography.
