It's my favorite time of year.. fair time! I just love everything about the SD County Fair from the food to the livestock to the bands and rides. But of course, my favorite is the International Photography competition. This year I told myself that I was only going to enter a few, which turned into 18 (cringe). 12 made it to Tier 2 (printing them and bringing them to the fair). I dropped them off and held my breath. Last week, I went to the awards ceremony and much to my delight, "Ice Climber" won Best of Show ! I am so honored and excited to have achieved something grand. This image was from my trip to Banff last December and was taken at the Upper Falls in Johnston Canyon. I don't know who the climber is, but was happy to find him there when I reached the ice falls. I wish I knew who he was as I would definitely love to share this honor with him!
