What a week!
First
Just went out to buy my copy of this month's issue of Photo Life Mag. First prize in their International Contest for the nature category is this pic ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/70000-74999/72670/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_668469.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/70000-74999/72670/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_668469.jpg', '/') + 1) . '. It really had no business being in amongst the pics in that mag. But I cannot take it back :)
Second
I sold 2 prints this week to someone locally that contacted me via email.

Now I noticed that back in Dec/09 Someone purchased one of my prints thru DPC Prints!

If you get a chance to pick up the PhotoLife mag, do so. There are some spectacular photos in there.

So the Lightning I refer to is the fact that now 2 of my pics have been published in a major mag! First a cover shot back in Sept/09
Cover Thread
and now 1st prize!

Just had to share the news with the site that has truly taught me a lot about photography.
