2013 NWF Photo Contest Winner – Landscapes!

Posted on by Steve

Hey everyone!

I know I’ve been a bit quiet lately, bit I wanted to share some pretty sweet news with you! My photo, Stormy Sunrise At Eagle Harbor Lighthouse won 1st place in The National Wildlife Federation’s 2013 Photo Contest!

There were a total of 32,000 entries across 8 categories – so to have my image selected is one of the biggest honors I’ve ever received as a nature photographer

Here’s a shot of the image on their home page (it’s still there as of 11-20-2013)



And on the winners page:



And a shot taken from the magazine (my picture of the picture isn’t too hot, but you get the idea)


Actually getting this photo was pretty intense, see the back story here:


Also, I just wanted to say thank you everyone for your support with this website and my photos. Thanks so much for stopping by!
