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!  😊
