Won a photo contest with a Big Bend picture
« on: April 28, 2009, 10:01:41 PM »
On the suggestion of my mother in law I submitted a few pictures of all my Big Bend trips, and today one of them was selected as the winner of a photo contest by the Austin American-Statesman.  Thought it was pretty cool  :icon_biggrin:

I love it, it almost looks like a miniature model the way the clouds are in the basin

Was that taken from Emory Peak?   I like the fog effect - very special.

Looks like the classic view of the Basin from the Lost Mine Trail to me.

Well done whickums!  :eusa_clap:

  Did you submit the color one as well and they picked the B&W?..or did you only give them the B&W one?
  Thought it was pretty cool  :icon_biggrin:
  You're right, it is cool.  :cool:
