Last August I entered some photographs in the local Electrical Cooperative’s Calendar Contest. I asked for input over on my photo blog…thank you to those of you who responded!
When I sent in the photos I asked for a reply and a nice gal replied “Yes we have your photos…thank you.” Then I didn’t hear a thing. Months went by and I didn’t hear a thing…
I was certain that none of my photos were good enough…oh well…one night in the middle of the night I thought well after the first of the year I am going over to the office and see which photographs made the cut. The only rules were that it be a horizontal photo with no people and be in the Electric Coop’s Service Area.
Lo and behold…Far Guy and Chance brought me a packet from the mail box yesterday. There was a letter inside. It congratulated me…and they chose four of my photos for the 2015 Calendar!!!
I immediately thought which four? Are you curious?
As I slipped the calendar out of the envelope I certainly must have squealed!
A photo I took just two miles down the road made the FRONT COVER!!
The snow on the bird feeders in our yard. I included this photo at the last moment…glad I did. It wasn’t even a possibility earlier.
The photo of the deer at sunset in Steve and Jo’s field made it at the bottom of the June page.
My favorite sunflowers made the August page!
I am just thrilled. I told Far Guy he is getting one for Christmas! I think they are giving them away at the open house they are having in December!
The competition was stiff.
I am still smiling! I applaud all the photographers. I don’t know any of them.
I won twenty dollars a photo and it will be taken off of December’s electricity bill. I can live with that!
It ain’t over till it is over…or just when you think all is lost ..it isn’t! Life is funny like that sometimes.
