…And The Winner Is…

You may have thought that I’d completely forgotten about this contest. I published that post back in May about the photo contest I’d entered for the Corolla Wild Horse Fund 2015 calendar.

I’m so very honored to say that, yes, one of my photos was indeed chosen to be in the calendar.  The judges selected this photo for the March 2015 calendar page:

in the wind

You may also recall my contest, offering a not-yet-revealed prize for the reader who thought “In The Wind” (as I titled that picture)  might be the photo the judges chose.

There were 40 comments to that post, and of those, ten selected “In The Wind” as their favorite, or the one they thought would be the judges’ pick. I’ll name the winner of MY contest a little further along in this post, but here’s the prize:

in the wind canvas 12-30-2013 4-02-17 AM 12-30-2013 4-02-17 AM

An 8 x 10 canvas print of the winning photo.

And the winner of the print is:

My blogging friend, Cindy, at Mama’s Empty Nest.  I hope you like the canvas, Cindy, and thanks for being such a faithful reader!

And thank you to everyone who participated in the contest.
