He told me that it has been a full and productive year. While the year before was spent recovering from surgery on a ruptured quad tendon above his left knee, Neal worked hard to rebuild his strength over the winter months with physical therapy and weekly sessions with a personal trainer.
This past January, Neal was back on an airplane, the destination, Austin, Texas. While eating too much BBQ seems to be a common problem there, the light was great, the temperature mild, and Austin is simply a fabulous place. By April he headed to Moab, Utah for three weeks where he combined aerial photography with ground-based photography. With over 2,000 photographs to edit and print, Neal is in the process of organizing the work and plans on making an on-demand book of the Utah pictures.
