Publications ~ 2012

I have not been “out” shooting a lot this year. Life taking its turns and all. I do miss the outings. I hope to get out soon. However, I do have some news to share.

A local paper “The Explorer” published Great Horned Owl ~ Sunset Silhouette in the Reader Photo of the Week page. A small feat, but exciting for me nonetheless!

I may never again be “found”, but this moment is big enough for me. Somebody thought enough about one of my images to use it and you just can’t put a price on that feeling!!
