|Apparently we’re all about silly faces in this picture and I didn’t get the memo.|
This year’s judges were Steve Babbit (Photography Professor at Black Hills State), Chris Huber (Photo Editor of the Rapid City Journal) and Ray Tysdal (Professional Photographer). Last year, both Steve and Chris judged the show which I thought would be the case this year as well. When I realized Ray was also a judge, I was rather excited because I deeply admire his work.
Wind Carved Snow Drift received the Best of Show award! When Ray presented it, he said there was no mistaking which photo was chosen for this. To hear his words and to meet him was especially meaningful for me.
I feel both greatly humbled and absolutely ecstatic for this photograph to receive such an award.
Thank you, to all!
