HONORABLE MENTION :)) "marsh snowstorm"

yesterday this image, printed 3' long and framed, was awarded an Honorable Mention at The Fine Art of Photography juried show at the Plymouth Center for the Arts!!!

the show will be up until May 5, and this hangs proudly with its white ribbon.  admission is free and the Center is open 7 days a week. 220 photos were chosen (out of 848 submitted) and are on display throughout the Center, and they are all amazing.  if you are interested in or just enjoy fine art photography this exhibition is a must see!  as i viewed the show yesterday i felt overwhelmed and priviledged to be included in such talented company, and awed to be getting an award! if you can't get there to view them in person the show catalog is available as a softcover, a pdf, or an ebook from blurb.

the image is from a january 2011 snowstorm. i was inspired by the wind and snow and the marsh colors to use longer shutter speeds to capture the storm movement throughout the marsh...this image is part of a 3-shot panorama i made that day.  back at the computer i was not bowled over by the whole thing but i saw this image within it, and this crop expressed my feelings as i stood there in the snow and the wind. on a whim i printed it out as large as i could.  i put the print aside but kept coming back to it. a year later i finally had it framed.  wow!
