My First Photography Contest Winner!


Northern Gannet

I recently joined the Bird Photography group on Facebook and enjoy seeing other people’s work as well as posting some of my own photos for others to see.  The group held it’s first photo contest last week and my Gannet photo above came out the winner.  Yay!  There were no fancy prizes or anything like that but it is nice to see one’s efforts recognized.  Congratulations to runners up Maxi Gamez and Debbie Stubbs for their very fine images as well.  This gannet image was taken in Jun 2012 on a visit to RSPB Bempton Cliffs in East Yorkshire, UK.  Hoping to get back there again for a return visit in September.

Chris & Christine headed out of Tanglewood for Naples area on a shopping trip early yesterday morning and didn’t get home until 10 pm last night.  She actually has some shopping bags so that can only mean she found something she liked. :)

    Congrats! Your photographs are wonderful. I especially like the one of the diving pelican.
