I know it's not polite to brag

And I know I have mentioned several times that I am a nature photographer and even shared a few pictures...but now here's the proof. I have a subscription to Adirondack Life Magazine as my family has a summer home there on Schroon Lake and I have been vacationing there my whole life. I have been so busy that not only have I been neglecting my blog but also my reading. I got this issue a couple of weeks ago, October 2009, and never even opened it until a friend and founder of the Adirondack Photography Institute, John Radigan, mailed me his copy with a note.


Here on page 28 is a shot I took of a spider web two falls ago with a macro lens. If you look really close you can see the red maple leaf reflected in each water droplet on the web. I have to say that this is one of my very favorite photo's of all time and I was elated, ecstatic, overjoyed, and ridiculously giddy when I opened up to see this! You can read the entire article here.

Now my hubby can stop laughing at me whenever I say I am going to submit a photo to ADK Life Mag-because I've been saying it for years and never did it! Thanks for letting me gloat!

I am impressed. The photo is stunning. I just completed a beginners photo class and plan to move on to an advanced class, I have been taking nature photos for years and felt it was time to find out why I liked some photos better than others! And to learn how to us my new digital camera to its full potential. I WANT/NEED a macro lens. I can only hope to someday get a photo as beautiful as yours. CONGRATS.
