National Geographic 2012 Photo Contest Editors' Favorite
Lens: DA 55-300 Camera: Pentax K-7 Photo Location: Chamonix-Mont Blanc 
Posted By: Heie, 12-08-2012, 09:45 AM

A couple months ago I came across a thread here started by forum member Hegemon, in which he asked if any of the images in the Nat Geo contest could have been taken with a Pentax. Because the window for submission was still open, I decided to roll the dice and enter four images that I was extremely proud of. One of those photos I discovered as being one of the Editor's Favorites out of over 22,000 (!) entries.

That photo is:

The link to the photo at the NatGeo site is here.

If anyone is curious, here are the four images that I submitted initially.

Thanks for am I excited

It's an awesome image, Alex! Didn't need an editor to tell us that you have talent.
