So the first thing I guess I should share are two songs from the upcoming second album of my band "Words of Farewell" which will be released on the 28th of February in Europe and on March 4th in the North American Territories.
Here's the lyric video for "Beauty in Passing": www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHSiIG…;
And here is the official music video for "Telltale Notion": www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yUPGI…;

Also I have made plans with JanPusdrowski to fly to Tenerife next month to explore the island. His original plan was to find a location that is actually really photogenic but has only little no no presence in the online landscaping communities. And since I've been on the Island back in 1999 and still know some of the locations were quite a treat we decided we'd give it a shot and see if there is something to put onto the map. Lately we wondered about people always travelling to the same locations because they know there is something just waiting to be captured, already having seen so many pictures of the place. And while I think that is a totally valid strategy which I follow myself most of the time Jan felt like we should maybe for a change try to do something different not to fall into the trap of being to strongly influenced by all the other great landscapers out there that are so much better than we are.
Tenerife offers a wide variety of scenery ranging from almost desert like mountain plateaus, atlantic rain forest and great shorelines to steep cliffs and canyonlands so we should be able to get some diverse imagery there and subsequently share it with you guys, and maybe inspire some other landscapers to explore and see the islands scenery for themselves.
Furthermore I would like to invite everyone to check out my facebook profile where I not only share images that may not make it onto deviantART but also some behind the scene shots, pre-edits and helpful links to tutorials and other things that may be an aid to your own work. As of yet there are some of my more popular images but there will be more in due time as I will be adding more and more content over the next weeks.

I would really appreciate if you liked my page and browsed though the current images already on there.
Thanks, and see you around!
