Reward for Early Rising
I was very happy to learn that my photo ‘Jefferson at Dawn’ received a top award medal in the New Jersey Federation of Camera Club’s recent print competition, group A. Entries included members of camera clubs throughout the state. While at a photo workshop last April my friend Wendy and I, along with a couple we had met on a previous workshop, CK and Lori, decided to go it on our own. We got up in the pre dawn hours and took a cab to the Jefferson Memorial. As we arrived a tour bus pulled up — we couldn’t believe it. It was still dark! We hurried to the spot we had scouted the day before while in the workshop, got out our flashlights, quickly mounted our cameras to our tripods and started shooting, before the tourists made their way into the scene. I am happy I decided to go for it as this is my favorite shot from the trip. This image will now be entered in a ‘Tops in NJ’ competition which can be any previous NJFCC winning photo.
