The reason for this blog.
For years I have been publishing on my main blog: Gnarly Dog News.
My primary interest was to publish my finding about sea kayaking and less about backpacking, often going deeply into the technical aspect of gear and its modifications.
I have a passion for tinkering and designing, and Gnarly Dog News is my outlet to share it with others.
But there is part of me that values highly the aesthetic streak I have, particularly photography, stills and motion.
I call it type B personality, where form is more important than function.
For too long I have been mixing it up at GnarlyDog News: fibreglassing and pumps with poignant images of sunsets. The two often didn't gel.
At GnarlyDog VIEWS things are simpler: a site dedicated to my best photographic efforts. No tech talk; well unless it takes a life of its own and I suddenly start to rant about cameras, lenses and such.
