Bear with me for a moment while do a little self-congratulation. A while back I wrote a brief post called Night Sky Shooting which included an image of the Milky Way over Osgood Pond in the Adirondacks. For the heck of it, I submitted this image and a few others to the Adirondack Life magazine's annual photography contest. This image won the grand prize and is published full-page in the April 2009 issue of the magazine.
In addition, another image I submitted (Mossy Cascade Waterfall) won second prize in the color photo category.
I've been a subscriber to Adirondack Life magazine for many years; I've always admired the quality of the writing, design, and photography; but I never participated in their contest (or any other for that matter) until this past fall. So, as a first-timer, I'm quite pleased.
This concludes the self-congratulation blog post. Thanks for your indulgence.
