The 2016 Southern Colorado Photography Society Annual juried show selected my image "Ode to Southwest" as Jurors Choice Award - this is an annual juried show that includes photographers from around Colorado and Pueblo. It is currently up at the Rawlings Library through Feb 26th 2016. I was excited to see that my image was selected as the Jurors choice- I entered this one image with the hopes of success and surprise... I was inspired to create this image after seeing an exhibit at the Sangre De Cristo arts center "Colors of the Southwest" in 2015. The artists in the show used vibriant color to depict their views of the southwest so I decided to try and create an image from Colorado that would show different sides of the region with a flare of color.
