JUDITH KUHN - "SAINT COLOMAN"

Judith Kuhn - Saint Coloman.jpg

"For this picture I would have liked some ground fog ... The morning was clear and cold (the thermometer at the location showed -22°C), and I was hoping for perfect conditions, as there is often a bit of fog at this location and at these temperatures the trees are white with hoar frost. But when I drove onto the highway, I could already see a thick bank of high fog in the direction of travel - I wanted the fog below and not above! Fortunately, shortly before Füssen it became clear that this high fog did not quite reach the mountains. Nevertheless, when I arrived, the entire sky over the church was gray, the mountains could not be seen, but at exactly the right time the clouds of fog cleared and gave a view of the mountain tops. Nevertheless, a little ground fog would have created a mystical atmosphere and more hoarfrost on the trees".

TERRY MARTIN - "TETON T-STORM"

Terry Martin - Teton T-Storm.jpg

"The photo depicts a rare double lightning strike from an approaching thunderstorm just as the rays of the rising sun were breaking through the clouds over the Tetons. It's a potent representation of the untamable power and sublimity of nature".
