My sister sent me a link a few months ago to this Alabama Outdoors photo contest and I thought, “I might as well enter something… who knows what can happen!” So I entered a handful of photos and didn’t think too much about it.
But in January, as I was sitting at school working on homework, an email floated across computer – “congratulations, photographers!” And low and behold, this duck photo had won first place in my age division! I totally was not expecting anything to come of my photos, so naturally I started yelping when I opened that email. I was so humbled and excited.
And then a couple weeks ago I got another email saying that the winning photos were on display at a lodge an hour away from my hometown, so of course I went to go see them. Totally awesome. :)
I’m very grateful for this honor. :)
Go check out the other photos here… there are some absolutely amazing ones!
