I just received word that two of my photos entered into the 2010 Wisconsin Trails Photo contest received the editor’s choice award.

Water Tension

Water Tension

This Is a photograph taken during the spring melt along the Red Cedar State Trail. I had noticed a lot of tension in the water along the reeds in a small puddle of water next to the trail. When I had a chance to examine the photo I realized that the reflections in the water were also an important part of the photograph.

I think I Can

This is a photograph of a Painted Turtle taken at Hoffman Hills State Recreation Area. I had gone to the area to photograph milkweed seed pods on a very warm November day. As I walked along the ponds I started to see frogs and then a number of turtles. The turtles slipped into the water as I approached. I setup the camera under a willow tree and waited to see if they would return. After a few minutes I noticed heads popping up in the water. I took a series of photos of this particular turtle as it tried to climb back on the log. Just after this shot the turtle fell backwards into the water.
