Last week I entered a couple photos into the Eastman Nature Photo Contest in Elm Creek Park Reserve. I entered a Trumpeter Swan photo that I took in Monticello last winter. To get that photo I spent 5 very cold mornings along the river and took over 1,200 photos. I am pleased to say that my patience paid off. The swan photo took second place in the wildlife category.
I entered a second photo in the contest for the landscape category. This photo was taken last month at Cascade River State Park. Again, I am pleased with a 3rd place ribbon!
