Our winner this month’s photo contest… is Willa Mason for her photo of a wild turkey feather.
Why did she win?
Well, it’s a classically good photo – strong leading lines and triangles – but what she says in her supporting text (see below) about observation skills tipped the photo over the edge to win!
“I came across this wild turkey feather while on a walk on my Aunt & Uncle’s farm in Orton, Ontario.
It instantly caught my eye because of it’s unique stripes, I like this photo because I think it shows a simple thing that some people wouldn’t even give a second glance, but when I took the time to look at it closely, and observe the texture it made me wonder, because I never would have guessed that turkeys have striped feathers!
Nice work WIlla! For her fine photo Willa wins a Canadian Geographic Magazine Subscription. Congratulations!
This is the final instalment of monthly photo contests this year. A big Thank-You to prize donators – DaveAndrews.ca, Canadian Geographic and Gwyn/Andrew Batchelor. And a special Thank-you to everyone who took the time to enter and share!
Stay tuned – the contest will return in 2012!
