Day 60/365…here comes the bug money…march 9, 2010

So, it is my Day 60 for my Project 365. I really wanted to shoot something epic; however, I got some epic news I thought I would share instead:

A while back a group of photogs and myself went out to photograph some sunflowers. We did not find many still alive, but I think overall we got some good shots; I got two I really was proud of. I thought I would submit one of them to a handful of magazines and contests – something I never do. One was www.naturesbestphotography.com. Today, I received a letter from Nature’s Best saying that my photo was chosen as a finalist. Also today, I received emails from Nature Photographer AND Nature (an international weekly journal of science) – both want to publish my photo in an upcoming edition!!

Honestly, to date, this is one of my favorite photos – 

Despite my move more into medicine, it is accomplishments like this that inspire me to continue my photography work. I needed this.

Shot with Canon 5DMK2 and 50 1.4 lens W/ 36mm extension tube.

ISO 200, 50mm, f5.6 @ 1/100 sec. Edited with Adobe Lightroom 2.6.
