There's just something about PDN's photo contests that makes me want to enter them. This time it's the Great Outdoors Photo Contest. It will be my third time throwing an image into the PDN arena to see how it does. Looking at some of the other entrants, I am totally humbled. There's been some damn good work submitted so far. Below is a screen shot of the image I submitted. It's Bethany Stanbery hangin' tough on her silk in Kootenai Canyon south of Missoula. Regardless of the outcome, I am totally stoked on this image. In fact, both shoots (here and here) I have had so far with Bethany have resulted in images that are among my new faves. Anyhow, we'll see. If I win, great. If I don't that is totally fine too. Sometimes simply creating an image you are proud of can both the means and the end. This is one of those images for me.
