Flickr Photo Of The Week 9


Congratulations to Abdul Akbari of Grapevine, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week. This the first time Abdul has won our little contest. He follows last week’s winner Jim West of Ferris.

If you would like to participate in the Flickr Photo of the Week contest, all you need to do is upload your photo to our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took earlier than the current week, but we are hoping that the contest will inspire you to go out and shoot something fantastic this week to share with Art&Seek users. If the picture you take involves a facet of the arts, even better. The contest week will run from Tuesday to Monday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Friday afternoon. We’ll notify the winner through FlickrMail (so be sure to check those inboxes) and ask you to fill out a short survey to tell us a little more about yourself and the photo you took. We’ll post the winners’ photo on Tuesday.

Now here’s more from Abdul.

Title of photo: “Heron at Sunrise”

Equipment: Nikon D800E with a 24-70mm f/2.8G lens handheld at ISO100, 1/200 sec, f/4 at 70mm

Tell us about your photo: Taken near Oak Grove Park at Grapevine Lake before sunrise. I saw the S-shaped cloud lit up under the calm water and the solitary heron in the foreground added to the serenity. Moved quietly to position the heron in what I felt was the right spot under the cloud and took this shot a couple of minutes before it flew away.
