I’m home! I arrived home on Vancouver Island in British Columbia one year to the day from my departure on a grand adventure travelling around North America in an RV with the goal of photographing as many beautiful places as possible.
I still have lots of images from Utah to show you before I write my post-trip wrap up and give you the final budget report. But for now I have to share with you my awesome welcome home surprise.
As I was going through a year’s worth of mail I saw a large envelope from Canadian Geographic and I think my heart skipped a beat.
I remembered being short-listed for their “Best Wild Weather Pictures of 2012″ collectors edition magazine, but I never heard anything back so I thought I didn’t make the final cut.
Flipping through the magazine I was thrilled when I came across my own image.
Canadian Geographic!! Seriously Canadian Geographic!! OMG!!
Here is the original version of the image they chose for the magazine. I made this image at Green Cove in Cape Breton where I stood on top of one of the highland cliffs and looked down to the waves washing over the boulders below.
Being recognized by Canadian Geographic is a huge achievement for me and I can’t tell you how ecstatic I am about it. And to think it has been on the shelf for over a month and I didn’t even know.
