I just got the latest issue of PDN in the mail today and found out that my image from the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta (above) was a finalist in the 2009 Great Outdoors Photo Contest. My image appears in the magazine and will also appear in a soon to come web gallery on PDN. Stay tuned for that - I'll put up a link as soon as it appears online. The judges in this years contest were Mark Pinsukanjana (Modernbook Gallery), Julia Vandenoever (Backpacker), Brenda Milis (Men's Health) and Krista Rossow (National Geographic Traveler). My thanks to them and PDN for choosing my image.
