Dan's mugshotDaniel H. Bennett was born in London in 1965 and lived in England until moving to the United States in 2000, settling in Northern Colorado.

His interest in vision and observation of the behavior of light has been life-long. On a trip to France as a young man his hosts called him “Monsieur Tête-en-l’air” (Mr. Head-in-the-air) due to his always watching for halos, rainbows, sun-dogs (parhelia), etc. He was particularly influenced by a book written in 1939 (published in English in 1954, Dover) by Professor M. Minnaert, called The Nature of Light and Colour in the Open Air. A Field Guide to Time-Varying Light Sources was conceived as a modern successor to that book, and adopts a similar approach, while revealing the secrets of modern light sources.

Daniel is married with four children, a motorcycle and two accordions.

I've decided to drop one of the distribution channels that my book could - maybe - be sold through. That has allowed me to drop the list price from $32.99 to $25.99. This price change takes effect immediately on Createspace's page, but may take a day or two to be reflected on Amazon's page.

    They hide throughout the day in cracks and warm places.

    Pests really are a huge problem in case you yield crops.
    So what direction to go if confronted with a pest control problem.

    We take the time to audit your estimate of file to find out if in case you have
    structural injury, body harm, and/or beauty harm. This is annotated
    to highlight the damage. We run a broken history report in your vehicle, so in case the loss is already showing up, we will reference it.
    Then we wrap it all together in a full shade appraisal.

    Besides its search engine itself, nearly all people don't use Google's additional features and
    tools that have a standing of being more for that technologically inclined.

    People prefer websites which may have full content on all of the web pages.
    Keeping approximately the requirements of online enthusiasts, Google combined all essential
    web features to further provide simplicity to every single Google member.

    Instagram. The gameplay is almost exactly as it
    was in the PC game, so you know that the mechanics behind the game are sound.

    The chapters have been organized so that the difficulty increases
    progressively with each chapter.
