I’m honored to once again have one of my images included in the Natural Landscape Photography Awards. The image above from Death Valley won the third-place award in the Deserts category.
Congratulations to all the winners! You can see the competition galleries here. It’s a beautiful collection of photographs, and quite an honor to have my work included. As always, judging such things is highly subjective, and I’m sure there were many, many wonderful images submitted that didn’t get selected.
As I said last year, when this competition began, I’m happy to see a competition that celebrates nature and photography in its purest form. Kudos to the organizers for continuing this competition, and I hope it keeps going for a long time.
