South Carolina Wildlife Calendar
While vacationing at Garden City, South Carolina, I had come across the South Carolina Wildlife/Hampton Wildlife Fund Photo Contest, hosted by the SC DNR.
I entered a few photos I had taken, one being the following for their “Recreation” category.
“Surf Fishing at Garden City”
So I didn’t win any awards, and that was okay. The winning captures were stunning and I could see quite difficult to beat. 🙂
A month ago, I received a large envelope from SC DNR that included their 2019-2020 Wildlife calendar just released. Awesome cover shot!
No letter or anything else, just the calendar. Hmmmm….
I reviewed the calendar, and oohed and aahed again at the winning photos.
As I reached the inside back cover of the calendar, I instantly saw my photo. 😲 Yes, the one of the fisherman above.

I still made the calendar! WOW! How cool is that!!
There was a photo contest rule, “a photo entry may still be selected to appear in the annual South Carolina Wildlife July-August calendar issue or other editions. Photographers will receive a copy of the issue if their photo has been selected.”
And that, my friends, is my five minutes of fame! 😊
