August 2010 FREE Photo Contest Winner for Sunrises/Sunsets!

Hoo, Boy!

I TOLD YOU
this month's
winner
would be impossible
to pick.

It WAS.

The three judges
could not agree
on a winner
per majority.

So, per the contest's process,
I had to go to a fourth
judge,
who then had to pick the
winner from the top three picked by
the previously randomly-picked three judges.

So, all of you that entered photos
can feel
very, very, proud.

As far as I am concerned, I wish I could hand out
winning widgets to each of you
for your entries.

But, in life, that is not the way it works.
I can only hand out
ONE winner widget....

So, without further ado....

(drum roll, please)............

August's Theme
was
SUNRISES or SUNSETS.

To refresh your memory, go to THIS LINK to see all of the entries.

The winner picked,
after much deliberation
and pain....

but certainly
WELL DESERVED
is
THIS beautiful photo:


Congratulations, to SCOTT Pierce!!!!....
He does not have a blog...
Perhaps he should???  A photo-centered blog perhaps? (Hint, hint, Scott!)

A wonderful shot! The judges thought it looked "heaven-like".

The judges had wonderful other "special mentions" also, to the following people:

--Larry J ("the texture on your sunset left me breathless!")
--Connie ("the color was so unique and it looked almost spooky looking")
--Carmen (" a wonderful photo!")
--Linda R. (the sun and the rocks, wow!")
-VaBookworm ("loved the incorporation of the trees in the sunset")
and
J.J. ("loved the color of the blues in J.J.'s sunset")

But, please NOTE...
the judges liked them ALL....they said it was a very tough decision....
So, all of you that entered should be very, very proud...
and
each and every one of you should keep on clicking those shutters...
because you are truly gifted.
Thanks so much for entering August's contest!

Thank you all so much for the comments. All the pictures were so beautiful. While on vacation last month my wife and I had some extra time to drive up a canyon in low clouds to watch the sun go down. I am sorry I don't have a photo blog, it's because I use a flickr account. For those of you interested in seeing other pictures of mine here is the URL. http://www.flickr.com/photos/51684794@N02/

Thanks again.
Scott Pierce
