How to Make them Mountains Sing!

I know that if you’ve read the title, you’re already judging my merits as a travel writer.  I think, if you see the video, you might start to worry about my merits as a travel photographer as well.  But, it’s all good.  What I’ve learn over the years is that mistakes are good.  Well, they’re not great, but they’re OK.  Mistakes, if we take them as a learning opportunity, will teach us to make the...
