I Sold an Image!

Hi All

Couldn’t resist letting y’all know my good news! Yankee magazine bought one of my autumn foliage images and it is in their current digital and print editions. It is a two-page spread in the print magazine as the lead image for their fall travel article. I was contacted this summer when the photo editor found my image through a search on SmugMug, looking for “Aroostook County, Maine.” Some of you may recall this shot from a while back after one of my treks north.

THANK YOU SMUGMUG!!

This is truly a thrill for me! Thank you, everyone, for indulging me as I brag. :smiley:

    I think if I had taken that shot, I'd still be bragging. Congratulations, Lauren. That's well-deserved accolades in winning that featured spot.

    Great Autumn image. I have to look up Aroostook on the map. Found it. Haven't been that far north up there yet. And... congrats!

    Thanks, gentlemen! Tom, it is indeed far north. Aroostook is the largest county in Maine and is known simply as “The County.” There was an Air Force base there (Loring) that has closed. I went to two years of HS there. If you ever get up that way I’ll gladly show you around. In fact, please be sure you call me when you do go to Maine. We can finally meet in person!

    You can bet, Lauren, the next time I'm up your way I'll meet up with you. My friend up there lives about an hour north of Portland on a big lake. The last time I was there, my wife and I used his home as a base camp and we spent two fantastic weeks traveling New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine. Additionally, we scooted over to Campobello Island in New Brunswick, Canada. We spent one night in East Port, Maine and I still have the t-shirt I bought at Waco's.

    I didn’t remember you’d been to Eastport. My g.mother grew up there. I have eaten at Waco’s—seemed weird since the Waco I know is the home of Baylor U! Definitely let me know when you plan a trip. You’re always welcome at our place.

    David, there is so much beauty in Maine. If you do make it that far north be sure to let me know. I’ll be glad to play tour guide for you!
