Alister Benn has shown us some absolutely wonderful images. Wow!

But he then accompanied them with several paragraphs of .....the Meaning of Life/Art/psycho-babble.   Oh, and by the way, when is the "Secret of Colour" revealed?

I didn't take it as "psycho-babble."  I thought the article was a little disjointed in opening by saying he wasn't being judgmental and then telling us that he's really only happy, for himself, with photographs that adhere to the truth of the landscape he is photographing.  While I don't completely agree worth that point of view, it really doesn't matter; I did understand what he had to say about the spirituality of landscape photography and how his mood impacts how he photographs.  Perhaps for some that is a little too touchy-feely, but I thought it was a message worth hearing and one that resonated with me when I'm in the field photographing.  We can certainly agree that many of his images were wonderful.
