First Place, Honorable Mention in TREES Inc. Photography Contest


I am excited to announce that two of my nature images received honors in the 2018-19 TREES Inc. “Shades of Winter” Photography Contest in Terre Haute, Indiana.

TREES 2018-19 First Place award for “Sycamore Frost”

“Sycamore Frost” received First Place in the Professional Division, and “Sycamore Freeze” was awarded an Honorable Mention.

Both leaves are from the Sycamore tree in my front yard  in Clay County, Indiana. I used my cellphone to capture the images on the fly.

For the contest,  I had each image processed as a competition print and mounted on foam core.

The exhibit of winning photographs went on display Feb. 11 in the Vigo County Public Library at Terre Haute and can be viewed through Feb. 28.

 

 

Sunday Replays: February Photo of the Month


Time to replay February photos featured in my 2012 Photo of the Week series. Thanks to all WordPress bloggers and email followers who sent me a “like” or comment to help select my February Photo of the Month. 

8/52 Smathers Beach (Key West, Florida) was the winning post among the February Fab Four. 

9/52 Roman God (King Neptune Statue in Virginia Beach, Virginia) was a close second. My granddaughter in 7/52 Pretty in Pink took third place, putting 6/52 Stark Naked (the sycamore tree in my backwoods) in its place – last.

I will continue to post a POW each Sunday and the winning POM thoughout 2012, culminating with everyone’s pick for Photo of the Year. I encourage everyone to comment on or rate each photo of the week to ultimately decide my “Best of the Best.”
