I decided this year I will try to do as many new things as I can. I've made a list of places in the UK that I haven't been as part of that resolution and I will also be on the look out for new activities.

My first challenge, to break me in gradually, was something I've never done with snow before..and that's to build an igloo. I've done snow men and snow sculptures before but never attempted an igloo.

I also decided to record the building of the igloo photographically and then shoot the built igloo at night with an inner glow. I've uploaded the result in my portfolio and the rating is favourable, so I'm pleased with that.

I've also written how to do it on my foliopic site blog Building an Igloo so you can get an idea a) how to build an igloo, b) how to photograph one and c) view one of the strengths of a foliopic site's article system.

Well, I have taken a look and found it quite informative & interesting, not quite sure though about mixing "portrait" / "landscape" images on the same line. ( I do realize that perhaps layouts are a probably bit restrictive )

Particularly like the last image with the light glowing from inside and the "deliberate" cracks in the bricks Wink

What next... taking over from Ray Mears on his bushcraft / survival programmes ?

I learnt from a very early stage of publishing that alignment is your friend...ie make sure things align...so it's not how I'd like the article to look, but the shots are in sequence so have to be like that...well that's my excuse. I know what you mean though.

What a great resolution Pete. I love that idea!

I actually have built an igloo before, about the same size as yours. Whew! I remember it tiring me out. Smile But it was fun.

I actually believe Pete, that if one made a list of the places they hadn't been in the UK, but would like to,it would be endless Smile
