There are not many times so far in my life where I have felt absolute happiness, but this day certainly was one. I sent my photo in on a whim that maybe; just maybe I would get some recognition of the hard work I put in…and then it happened!
The lovely email I received from Soo from The Telegraph was so lovely, and the smile from my face would have lighten up anyones day! The email said, “Congratulations, you are this week’s winner. Your photograph will appear online later today and on the back page of Telegraph Travel on Saturday”. I was still in shock (and still am to some extent), but to see MY photo in a national newspaper in print is and forever will be one of my greatest achievements.
I was lucky enough to be asked by Lytro to Beta Test their NEW iOS app! I can say, its BRILLIANT!
The #lytro #camera has a hidden Wifi connectivity chip which enables the camera to communicate to #ios devices. So, this means you can take a picture, and then connect to your iOS device and then upload it! HOW AMAZING IS THAT!?
Within the app you can do everything you would expect to do. Re-focus images, see recent photos, see the most popular images and many more features.
It was truly an honour to be part of such a wonderful honour…and this just another example of how Lytro are changing photography FOREVER.
I have always thought, sometimes when we want a photo to look great we have to position subjects, the lighting, check for stability just to name a few.
But with nature, things just seem to “come together perfectly”
When I tool this photo, I was taken back at the colours, the calm of the Nile, and the peacefulness of the whole picture. It made me think that we always take for granted the man made creations that we have, but we can never compete with nature.
Thanks Mother Nature for making this photo one of my favorites.
