Finding the Light Workshop Contest Winner

You know, I don’t win a lot of things, but I still enter contests just to see. Usually, I get close to winning, but I never end up getting 1st place. So, on a whim, I decided to enter the Finding the Light Workshop contest. The rules were to pick a photo that I felt best represented 1 of 2 quotes she provided.  So, I chose to enter this photo and quote:

“I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.” E.E. Cummings

I figured, it never hurts to try, but just knew that there would be a lot of entries. What made it even worse was that I would not be able to see any of the other entries, so I had no idea what I was up against.

So the evening came that the winners would be posted… I actually almost forgot to check, but then remembered. I go to the Finding the Light blog and here is what I see:

My jaw dropped! I won, I won, I won!!! And to read on that there were over 1,500 entries! I was shocked, amazed, humbled, honored…. And more than anything, it was the sort of affirmation I needed to give me the push to keep growing in photography.

Congratulations to all the other contest winners, too! I’m so excited to do this workshop with all of you!
