I am quite excited about the following recent development:
A Whalehead image I call the "Early Years" has been chosen to be on the book cover of a mystery novel called "Murder On The Hoof", written by Kathryn O'Sullivan. This is one of my early HDR sequences, it was taken before Hurricane Noel destroyed the Osprey's nest, which is visible on the far left chimney.
This book is a sequel to "Foal Play" which is already in print.
David Rotstein, Executive Art Director, St. Martin's Press, contacted me in August 2013, to discuss the possibility of using the image "Early Years" which he came across on Redbubble.
David indicated that there would be some significant image alteration which I wanted to ensure would not desecrate the Whalehead in any way. David submitted a crude mock up with the proposed changes (below) which made me chuckle, especially the following quote by David: "The horse on the horizon is of course very poorly executed". The horse looks great compared to the bush on the left!
Then lastly David presented the final edits that were presented to the author and editor - which were accepted!
I think it looks fantastic .....

I finally got to meet Kathryn O'Sullivan at a recent book signing in Bethesda, here are some images:
