Roxborough State Park Calendar Contest

I have decided to enter some photos in a contest sponsored by The Friends of Roxborough State Park.  They will be choosing images to publish in a calendar that will be sold to benefit the park.  Roxborough is small for a state park, but what it lacks in quantity is made up in quality.  As a direct result of getting a camera last spring, I made more visits to the park in the last year than I had in the previous 13 combined.  I am blessed to live just a mile and a half from the park entrance and have truly enjoyed getting to know this special place.

I can only submit 6, so I have some trimming to do. Hard choices… Here are the contenders:

  1. My faves: #1 (rocks), #3 (sunrise/road), #5 (lightening), #7 (bird #1) and #8 (bird #2). Great pics.

  2. 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 9 (all excellent, though).

  3. You are seriously talented. Nos. 5 and 3 are my favorites in that they give a sense of place. Next: 8, then 4. The wildlife photos are awesome, but they don’t necessarily say “Roxborough” on first glance; they could be taken … not anywhere, but elsewhere.

  4. These are all great pics. My favorites are 8 and 9. I love the color contrast of 8 and I think that 9 is framed perfectly. Your friend is right though about Roxborough representation.
