Bristol Photographer Tames Wild Vortex

February 26th, 2007

I was lucky enough to be shown a picture of what I can only describe as an inside out view of a vortex. It’s the most beautiful view of a whirlpool I’ve ever seen, a truly spectacular result for someone who has obviously given some serious dedication to the art and craft of his chosen profession. Luckily, Paul was generous enough to let me post my new favourite thing on my own website.

If you feel in need of a bigger fix, Paul has them to see as part of his case studies on his own content packed website. This is where you find a professional photographer who will overwhelm you with face value evidence of why he can get you the results you need.

And to think I only asked Paul if I could feature one of his Westonbirt Arboretum photographs. I like my trees and waterfalls but I’m seriously thinking of doing a website with whirlpools (yeah and maybe some time lapse.)

What is it?

wasp ball

Is it the start of a wasp nest? Is a queen wasp in there somewhere? I took the picture last year just before this particular field was cut for hay.
