I have been meaning to write a reply for a long time, as I have been enjoying your excellent collection very much indeed. The standard of quality of your photography has been very inspirational and has directly made me review and refine my own techniques multiple times over the years, every time I saw another one of those stunning quartz or rhodochrosite photos of yours. Thanks a lot for sharing it with all of us!
