Outdoor Photographer of the Year

I decided last minute to send in a handful of images to the Outdoor Photographer of the Year competition. Most photo contests are pretty worthless, but several photographers I really respect have participated in this one in previous years, so I decided to give it a shot. Just heard today that 5 of my photos (see below) made it onto the contest short list, which was definitely unexpected. Lots of images made it this far and I'm sure I won't make it any further in the process, but I'm pretty happy with the result in any case!

Second Wave  // After an unimpressive sunrise faded to gray, we started to head back to the car. A few minutes later, the sky absolutely erupted out of nowhere in the most vibrant colors I’ve ever seen.

Begin Again  // Life cycles on the coast of Newfoundland, about as far east as you can get in North America.  This image is also available as a matted print in my print shop:    CLICK HERE.

Rotational Symmetry  // Seaside leftovers on Canada’s Fogo Island. Among the sweeping views of the North Atlantic, the tiny details underfoot were what caught my attention the most.  This image is also available as a matted print in my print shop:    CLICK HERE.
