Sunrise at Thomas Point Lighthouse

My photo, “Sunrise at Thomas Point Lighthouse,” won the Mentor Series “Best of Maryland” photography competition.  I feel honored.  Mentor Series Worldwide Photo Treks are sponsored by Nikon and Popular Photography magazine.  The photo, taken on the Chesapeake Bay, is one of two of my images exhibited in their gallery, a selection of photographs from about 25 photographers who enjoyed three days of shooting together in Maryland last month. I’ll post more about the Maryland photo trek in the days to come.  Their website is:

Considering the quality of images from the other photographers on our trek, I am deeply honored. The two professional photographer mentors on our trip were Cory Rich and Mark Alberhasky. Both shoot for Nikon World, among many other credits.

Swallowtail Butterfly

My second image, selected for the gallery, was a close-up of a “Swallowtail Butterfly,” taken in the marsh lands of Eastern Neck Wildlife Refuge.  More to come, soon.
