Congrats to everyone at the photo contest!

I had the pleasure of being invited to be a judge at a regular photo contest here in Austin for the ACC Photography Department. I have spoken there before and I suppose I did just barely an acceptable enough job to be invited back! The students and faculty there are always extremely nice and I enjoyed being with them – a special thanks to William Tolan and Kathryn Watts-Martinez.

I wish I had more ribbons to hand out! There were some outstanding entries… There were about ten or so I almost gave it to, including this one masterful retouching I wish I could get my hands on to show you all. But they were all anonymous and I can’t find any of them!

I ended up giving the award to some gal with the last name Saunders who took a picture of that perfect barn in front of the Grand Tetons. She was not in town to accept the award, so I have no idea who she is! If you are reading this, contact me so I can post your photo here for the world to see… it’s quite amazing, and better than the ones I have taken, which still remain unpublished… I’ll probably get mine up in the next few months, but I don’t think it is as good as hers!

Here is a photo that I took in Wyoming just a few miles south from hers… (which I hope she sends soon!)

The Grand Tetons

  • i would like to see the pic, because that is an overated place. (meaning, way too many photographs of the same buliding. i love your pics of montana by the way. outstanding!

    Trey, that had to be so hard. I wouldn’t want that job!!!! Your photos are so wonderful, can’t imagine seeing some that are even better, but there are always those pictures that are extra special. It’s a good thing they have these competitions that show them to the world. I, too, love your pictures of the Rockies!!!!! Thanks so much for sharing so many varied pictures that broaden our concept of the world!! πŸ™‚
