The 2013 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest recieved over 15,000 submissions from countries across the globe.

 

        I am very pleased to announce that my photograph entitled "Thunderstorm at False Kiva" took 2nd place out of over 15,000 image submissions this year at the National Geographic 2013 Photo Contest. National Geographic Traveler Director of Photography Dan Westergren, one of this year's judges, shares his thoughts about the image:

“This photo combines two different scenes into one: the small kiva in a cliff dwelling and the grand vista of Canyonlands National Park across the valley. I really like the two different color palettes—warm inside and purple outside. This two-for-one scene was caused by the lightning storm outside the dwelling, which lit up the landscape like it was a huge electronic flash. Looking at this picture I can imagine what a wonderful sight it must have been for the ancient people who lived here. It doesn't seem too amazing now in our modern world, but might have been mind-blowing for the prehistoric residents.”

It was a pleasure working with Africa Geographic and having my article on Black Footed Cats published in the April 2011 issue. I was fortunate to be a researcher on the Black Footed Cat project in Kimberley, South Africa for several months. I learned a great deal about the species and spent a lot of time tracking them in the field, which allowed me to write up this article and include several of the images I had taken during those months of work.
