Contest #2: Details in Nature

Varina took this photograph with a 180mm macro lens earlier this year. Most visitors to Death Valley National Park never notice the beauty in the tiny salt crystals that cover the floor of the salt pan. As a nature photographer, do you slow down and notice the details? We want to see your best detail shot. The theme of our next contest… Details in Nature. This time, we’re offering a free webinar session as a prize. We hope you will enter!

Keep in mind – you do not need a macro lens to capture details. Jay’s shot (below) of ice crystals in Paria Canyon, was taken with a normal mid-range zoom lens. Get creative!

As before, we’re going to keep things pretty simple for this contest. We have made a few changes, so make sure you read the rules carefully.
