Funny, I just saw this magazine for the first time from a friend. I loved the Cahaba Lily photo.

Hewy, It is a great Magazine. It comes out 4 times a year and worth the subscription to me.

Thanks so much for the congrats - I was very pleased to be published for the first time. It's ironic that the winner in flora is a friend of mine, I took her to "my" place to shoot cahaba lilies at the time of day I had discovered to be so good, so I was with her when she took it. I told her, "see if I take you anywhere again!" Anyway I look forward to seeing your work at Big Mountain.
