quadra to cortes

This is a photo I took in June 2010 from Rebecca Spit on Quadra Island, BC.  I got up at 4 in the morning and drove out to the spot, took about 150 photos as the sun rose and this one turned out to be my favorite.

I recently found out about a flickr photo competition for BC residents put on by ICBC for their BC destinations 2012 calendar.  A couple of weeks ago I received an email stating that this photo was chosen as a finalist for the calendar.  Today I received an email stating that the photo has been chosen and I’ll be receiving a $300 gift certificate for camera gear.  Needless to say I’m feeling the stoke.
