Taking just a few minutes to photograph, this landscape of Cannon Beach, Oregon turned into quite a little success for me. A few months ago, I entered this photograph in a Facebook contest sponsored by Tamron Lenses and Global Traveler Magazine (a luxury travel magazine). My photo made it as a Top 20 Finalist, then selected as the winner; which resulted in a new Tamron lens! A week later I was notified by a representative from the magazine; they wanted to use my photo for their cover of the August issue. I was so ecstatic! What an accomplishment!
