Happy April Fools day

Yesterdays post was indeed a joke.

And maybe it was not the most obvious one at first, but no I didn't travel all the way to 'Fresno' to get 'the shot' of Tunnel View. I mean, c'mon.

This post was part of a larger scheme, set up by no other than +Jim Goldstein . About 10 others participated in the gag. Linking blogs to each other and basically what we were doing was posting the same shot over and over again.

It was our way of poking fun at the homogeneity of today's landscape photography scene where everybody is going after the low hanging fruits. And shooting copies of copies of copies of the same photograph. Where's the fun in that?!


Here are the links of all the participating photographers.
