I Won!!

Shortly after returning from our early summer Alaska cruise, I entered Gastineau Guiding Company’s 2011 Capture Juneau Photo Contest.  The contest was open to anyone who took one of Gastineau’s guided tours.

Yesterday I got a phone call from Chris with Gastineau with the news that I had won third place with this photo.

The whale watching excursion that we went on was probably my favorite of the entire trip, and the whale watching was spectacular.  We were fortunate to see two humpback whales bubble net feeding.  What magnificent creatures.

When Gastineau posts all of the 2011 winners on their website, I’ll let you know.  I’m sure they’re lots of spectacular pictures.

If that was 3rd, I'm expecting to see 1st and 2nd in National Geographic.

Great photo!!! I can only imagine what 2 and 1 were if you were 3rd. Looked to me like you had a #1 shot there honey. Hugs, LJ

Congrats - excellent shot. I dreamed about whales last night, and only remembered it when I found this post.

It's my birthday today. Swing by my blog for some cocktail weenies and a whiskey sour if you have the time. 8-)

Third Place is awesome, but I can hardly imagine what the 1st and 2nd place was like as your photo is magnificent.
