My wife sent this photo of mine to the KVUE Weather Snapshot contest and.. it was selected! It will be featured during Mark Murray’s weather cast on June 26. I suppose that’s better than any number of other ways I figured my name would end-up on the news.
Click on the daily photo winners link and then click on the calendar to look at the photos. I’m on June 26, 2006. Looking at the competing photos in June is pretty funny. Almost every one of them is of bright flowers, beautiful sunsets, light shimmering off of the lake, and cute animals. But not me, though. Oh no. My photo is of a morning fog enveloping a bunch of dead trees. Happy Summer, everyone! Sheesh.
Anyway, each daily winner has a chance to win the photo of the month. I have a bunch of technical criticisms to level at my photo, but it was just a snapshot and not intended to be displayed, much less entered into a contest. On the plus side, the unique (at least for the month of June) subject matter might help me and the photo has some good tonal qualities and some depth. Still, I think the cute squirrel photo will win. Everyone loves a cute squirrel.
