One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2015—Braggadocious

I’ve never been a braggadocious kind of person but something happened the other evening that motivates me to toot my own horn just a bit. For the second year in a row, I was awarded “Print of the Year” by the Placer Camera Club. I am thrilled that my peers like and appreciate my photography enough to bestow this honor on me. This year I won for a sunrise photograph I took in Costa Rica in January on a K&M Adventures trip with Kevin Dobler and Moose Peterson. Last year, I won the same award for another sunrise photograph I took on a K&M Adventure with Kevin and Moose in the Grand Canyon. I tried something new for this year’s print competition. I had the Costa Rica photograph printed on aluminum, something I’ve wanted to try since seeing metal prints in Arizona a couple of years ago. There is something spectacular about a metal print; the technique gives the photograph incredible depth and clarity. I was very pleased with my first metal print and even more thrilled when it won the award. Here is the print itself bedecked with its ribbons, a first place in the “Landscape” category and the very fancy “Photo of the Year” ribbon.

Thank you, Placer Camera Club!
