We asked photo bloggers to share their best shots of texture in nature. Texture is everywhere we look, but getting a beautiful photo of it is never easy! Trent Sizemore has won the 1st place award with his stunning shot of the ever-changing texture of moving water. Have a look at his winning entry here!
Julie Dawn Fox has won herelf an audience choice award with her great photo of the texture of a muddy puddle frozen over on a cold morning – it seems to beckon to us to step on it just to hear that wonderful crunching sound underfoot! Have a look at her winning entry here!
It’s never an easy task to pick the honorable mention winners – each week we find ourselves wanting to hand out a dozen or more awards because there are simply so many excellent photographers who participate in the challenges. We do our best to narrow it down, but you should know that the competition is painfully close! Listed below in no particular order are our honorable mention selections!
