Wednesday Surprise!

If you've been around for a while, you know that I won a local photo contest back in October.  My winning photo made the front cover of our local visitor's guide.
October 7/Landscape
I was super excited!  I got a check for $50 and they sent me a copy of the visitor's guide in the mail before anyone else could get one.

Well, I was on their website last week and decided to go ahead and enter a couple more photos.  Each month has a theme and while I wasn't sure this really fit the idea of March's Scenic and Serene theme, I uploaded it anyway.

Last month I stepped out onto my porch to photograph the gorgeous sunset we were having that evening to find that the deer had stopped by for a visit.  They spooked a little when I came out, but I stood very still for a few minutes and they settled down.  And I was able to capture this photo.

This morning I got an email saying that I won March's photo contest!  WOOT!  Another 50 bucks and a spot in next year's visitor's guide!  I'm so glad I decided to enter.

Happy Wednesday!
