As I did a year ago, I entered another couple photos in this year's contest. Just because. A: Because I love my dogs, and B: because I really dig Mountain Gazette. Last year I got lucky and they included one of my entries in the issue, #176. It was my first-ever published photo.
I didn't really get any word from them about my submission this year, nor did I expect to, other than a quick, emailed "thanks" from the editor. But, when I didn't get a subsequent request for a high-res version of either image, I kinda figured my beginner's luck had expired, and that I'd been passed over for this year's issue.
Made my day.
If you look close, you might find Rubi, the dumb-puppy, in winter-camo-mode in the background, too.
