This week I entered one of Pioneer Woman's photography contests.  I've entered a few of her contests- but the chances of making it into one of her 'groups' is pretty slim when you're competing against 100,000 other photographs!

Her theme was 'love.'  I had the perfect shot from this summer...


And I made it into one of her groups!  Yippee!  This is even better than winning (ok maybe not... but nearly as good!).

Go visit her Photography section and admire the other finalists (I'm in group four if you want to see with your own eyes!)

Canyons in Black and White

These photos were taken one morning at Lake Powell on a kayak/hiking adventure a few of us embarked on.  We kayaked to the end of a canyon, parked the boats, and then continued hiking until we could go no further.  We ended up in one of the area's infamous slot canyons.  The rock walls were an intriguing red color but the texture of the rocks and their interesting shapes begged to be turned into black and white images.  Enjoy these photos- it was quite an adventure!

My dear friend tied the knot this past weekend.  We were fortunate to be able to celebrate with her and her love, Dan.  Here's a few photos from their sweet and simple wedding:

Congrats Laurel and Dan!
