Fall Sunsets Assignment Winner Wendy Gedack

Fall Sunsets Assignment Winner Wendy Gedack Photo By Wendy Gedack Congratulations to Wendy Gedack for winning the Fall Sunsets Assignment with the image, “Breath of Light Awakens Color.” “Racing to this scene from Mt. Wilson near Telluride, Colorado, had me setting up my camera gear with minutes to spare to capture this panoramic,” says Gedack. “It appeared as if there wouldn’t be a decent sunset near Telluride, so I decided to head back toward Dallas Divide in hopes of a sunset at the top of the divide. As I crested the pass, the divide was void of clouds, but Mt. Sneffels in the distance had significant promise. Now it was a race as to which county road I could…

Fall Wildlife Assignment Winner Gene Putney

Fall Wildlife Assignment Winner Gene Putney Photo By Gene Putney Congratulations to Gene Putney of Putney Nature Images for winning the recent Fall Wildlife Assignment with the image, “Rocky Mountain Bull Elk.” Captured in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, Putney explains, “At first I could not see this bull and his harem below the ridge; I could just hear his bugle in response to other bulls that were nearby bugling. With the autumn colors of the aspen trees for a background, I knew it would be a nice setting if he decided to make an appearance. Through wishful thinking, he gave me my opportunity as he charged up the hill to get a better viewpoint to protect his harem.”…

Fall Colors 2018 Assignment Winner Zeralda La Grange

Fall Colors 2018 Assignment Winner Zeralda La Grange Photo By Zeralda La Grange Congratulations to Zeralda La Grange for winning the Fall Colors 2018 Assignment with the image, “Sunrise Over Dallas Divide.” “In south Louisiana, we get very little in the way of vibrant fall colors,” explains La Grange. “So every fall I make it a point to go somewhere to see color. Up until now, my fall travels have taken me east. This was my first venture west for the fall. I joined a photo tour with Tom Bol and George Theodore as they know the area. When we arrived for the sunrise at the Dallas Divide, I did what I normally do. I parted from the crowd and…

Shadows Assignment Winner Vassili Balocco

Shadows Assignment Winner Vassili Balocco Photo By Vassili Balocco Congratulations to Vassili Balocco for winning the recent Shadows Assignment with the image, “Bramito.” “Photographing deer in the mating season is amazing and offers the chance to observe different interesting behaviors,” explains Balocco. “On this occasion, I was in the Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park in Italy under my camouflage hide with a wonderful valley before my eyes while I heard a belling deer quite close behind me. I slowly and quietly rotated my tripod and started shooting this big male that didn’t seem to realize I was there. I had some time before he left and I managed to take a few nice photos. But, more importantly, it was…

Motion Blur Assignment Winner Henrik Spranz

Motion Blur Assignment Winner Henrik Spranz Photo By Henrik Spranz Congratulations to Henrik Spranz for winning the recent Motion Blur Assignment with the image, “Weave.” “For many weeks I’ve had the idea to shoot a photo like this using a panning technique combined with an external flash during a heavy snowfall,” explains Spranz. “All I had to wait for were the perfect conditions. Then the forecast for the next day seemed perfect, so I took a day off work to drive to a forest I know to do some experimental photography. This photo involved using my external flash and panning my camera from top to bottom with a shutter time of 1/3 sec. As I’ve wanted to have an…

Birds In Flight Assignment Winner Philippe DE-BRUYNE

Birds In Flight Assignment Winner Philippe DE-BRUYNE Photo By Philippe DE-BRUYNE Congratulations to Philippe DE-BRUYNE for winning the recent Birds In Flight Assignment with the image, “Perfect Landing.” “Even photographing two to three days a week, the chance of capturing good images of snowy owls is rare!” says DE-BRUYNE. “But for this image, the conditions were perfect. A beautiful male snowy owl was at the same place for several days in a row. I watched it for a long time before I knew its favorite place, and I was able to photograph it several times coming in for a landing.” Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Canon 500mm f/4 lens. Exposure: 1/2000 sec., f/5.6, ISO 100. See more of Philippe…

Nightscapes Assignment Winner Tom Elenbaas

Nightscapes Assignment Winner Tom Elenbaas Photo By Tom Elenbaas Congratulations to Tom Elenbaas for winning the recent Nightscapes assignment with the image, “White Pocket Star Trails.” “A couple years back I spent the night at White Pocket with my brother Bob (relenbaasphoto.com) and another photographer friend, Steve Dahl. Bob and Steve both live in relatively close proximity to White Pocket, part of Northern Arizona’s Vermilion Cliffs National Monument, but for me, it was my first (and so far only) visit to this oasis of Navajo sandstone ribbons. We were met with perfectly clear skies, dashing any hope for a dramatic sunset or sunrise but ideal for our main objective of shooting the Milky Way and star trails framed by…

Textures Assignment Winner Sangeeta Dey

Textures Assignment Winner Sangeeta Dey Photo By Sangeeta Dey Congratulations to Sangeeta Dey for winning the recent Textures assignment with the image, “Hope.” “While I love to shoot alpine landscapes, I fell in love with the desert when I visited Death Valley National Park for the first time a few years ago,” explains Dey. “This place is like a huge jigsaw puzzle offering miles and miles of opportunities for creative self-expression. I shot this scene during the time of a super bloom. At the time, millions of flowers were blooming in the desert. However, I was fascinated by this little scene. It told a story of hope, strength and resilience, and was inspired by the Leonard Cohen song lyric, ‘There is…
