At Last, Photographer of the Year!

The result of the recent 65th Annual Canadian Armed Forces Photography Contest declared my three photo entries in the Environment Category winners.  First place for the image titled "Star Gazer:, 2nd Place for "Twilight" and an Honourable Mention for "Middle Earth".  These top winning images earned me the highest points to earn the "Photographer of the Year Award" in the Advance Classification.  My first place image also won the Best In Show: Best of all 1st Place Winning Images.  The award was presented to me by the Canadian Vice-Chief of the Defence Staff, Vice-Admiral Mark Norman which was held last November 23, 2016 at the Canadian Museum in Ottawa.

PEOPLES CHOICE AWARD  & 2nd Place - Environment Category (Advance Classification): "The Force of Nature"

Year 2015,  I won the People's Choice Award for my image entitled "The Force of Nature" from the 2015 Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) Photography Contest. The same image also won 2nd Place - Environment Category (advance classification).  This year makes me the Peoples Choice Winner for 5 consecutive years!

I received the award along with other major award winners from the Vice Chief of the Defence Staff, LtGen Guy Thibault which was held at the Canadian War Museum last November 25, 2015.

The image was taken last March 2015 during the photo tours I joined in an Icelandic beach called Reynisfjara. The weather obviously was not really nice, but I took that situation as an opportunity to capture the dynamics feel of the sea and sky in monochrome.  It lies approximately 110 miles from Iceland's capital Reykjavik and features an amazing cliff of regular bailout columns resembling a rocky step pyramid, called Gardar.

Another winning image of mine was a 1st Placer in the Environment Category (advance classification) entitled " Iceland "
