A Winner!

This is the first photograph I ever uploaded to my blog:



Yesterday, at my last landscape photography class, we had a contest. It was judged by the community center staff and our teacher. There were some beautiful images of plants and animals. My personal favorite was a baby squirrel standing by a blue flower. But in the end, I took first place! It felt great.

I took this picture with a Nikon N75 film camera. We were anchored on a buoy in Banks Channel at Wrightsville Beach. When I got the photo back, I was very, very surprised and delighted at how it turned out. It is probably my all time favorite photograph that I have taken. I'm glad it's a winner!

Mamie - this is breathtaking!!! Gorgeous!!! I'm just catching up on blog posts - I was housesitting for some friends who are only privy to dial-up due to their location. How are you?!
