Thanks all for taking the time to view, and for the wonderful comments. Very much appreciated.

It truly is an honor to be selected as a finalist, and then as a second prize winner especially because of the caliber of all the photos entered in the contest. It really is very humbling to be chosen. I cannot believe I won second prize.

Thanks again everyone. #783110
