2009 Travel Photographer of the Year finalist, Homeland category

In a shameless attempt at self promotion, I’ve included in this post four of my images that have been shortlisted for the 2009 International Travel Photographer of the Year photography contest.  Needless to say I was surprised to make it this far.  Apparently their are thousands of worldwide entrants, both professional travel photographers and photo enthusiasts.   My images were all taken in the southern Canadian Prairies, three in Manitoba and one in Saskatchewan, and submitted under the Homeland Portfolio theme.  It does say one thing in particular, it’s not always necessary to be in an exotic locale to get a good image.  I think too many of us fail to appreciate what’s in our own backyards.  Who knows, maybe those who are unfamiliar with the Canadian Prairie might actually consider these places exotic; I know in many ways I do.

  1. These are superb. They well deserve the honour they have received … and never doubt for a moment that the Prairies are one of the great exotic places on earth.
