Oregon Wild 2011 Photo Contest

My image titled, "Alvord Desert Sunrise" was chosen as the winner of the Wildlands category of the Oregon Wild 2011 Photo Contest. There were over 400 images submitted this year, so this is quite an honor for me! I won a $250 gift certificate to Pro Photo Supply and a new REI Flash 65 lightweight backpack. The image will also be published on the Oregon Wild Website and in the Oregon Wild Magazine.

Here is my winning image.

Here is a picture of me with the 20x30 print at the Oregon Wild Photo Contest unveiling/silent auction. This is the first 20x30 print I've had made and I was impressed with how well it turned out. Angie and I had a great time at this event. It was fun to meet several other Oregon Wild members and view all of the winning images. The prints were all beautiful and we ended up buying Brizz Medding's image titled "Skunk Cabbage Sofa".

I would like to personally thank Oregon Wild for hosting this photo contest and also for all of the work they do protecting Oregon's endangered places and animals. Please click the Oregon Wild logo image at the top of this post to learn more about Oregon Wild.
