Will your photo win?

Attention all you amateur photographers out there! National Geographic and Nature Valley (those granola bar people that we help keep in business due to Paul's Costco-sized habit) are sponsoring a photo contest. They are looking for pictures of people experiencing the wonder of nature. Grand prize is an eight day privately guided rafting trip through the Grand Canyon! Can you imagine how cool that would be? Here is the link to the contest:

I decided to enter the picture that rests against my fireplace. It was a shot I took last summer of Mari and Ben's first day at the beach. We went to Laguna Beach and I took a shot of them looking out to the ocean at the tide pools. We like it so I figured why not share it with the world? Below is the photo I entered. I don't feel like the blog really does it justice (it looks like the coloring is a bit off) but you will get the picture. How awesome could would it would be if one of out in blog land won? I would love to see your entries and stories so send them my way!
