to ALL photographers!
the magic of the universe! Whether it's summer, fall, winter or spring, the sun
rises and sets... and on those special days, a rainbow appears. Competition images
can reflect the contrast of devastation with hope, a ray of light shining through
tall buildings, the wing of an airplane against an orange sky, a silhouette of
a person or object against the late afternoon or early morning light, a couple
on the beach, scenic with mountains, trees, through the window of your home or
car, from a battlefield to your backyard! Add in a stormy day with monstrous clouds
and all of a sudden the sun breaks through -- a rainbow or two becomes a majestic
skyscape palette. It's Magical, uplifting, inspiring and soothing to the heart
