Just for the Halibut...

Something happened today.  Something, well, inconsequential to tell you the truth.  I was getting some enlargements of photos for my parents, and they're cheaper than I thought they'd be.  It made me decide that I'd like to do a giveaway.  I searched for a good reason for a giveaway, but couldn't come up with one, so...

In honor of the mundane...

In order to break up the day to day a little bit...

Because you guys are awesome...

Because, frankly, I'm proud of these...

Because I want to...

Here is the giveaway:

Lower Falls
Bear Lake (horizontal)

Bear Lake (vertical)

Old Faithful

Storm Clouds

Maroon Bells

Alpine Flowers

Spouting Rock

Hanging Lake

Glenwood Canyon

Miner's Cabin*

Rancher's Cabin**

Dam Wall


The winner will get to pick between:

One 11x14
Two 8x10's
Three 5x7's

Now, there are some terribly complex rules for entering, and I'm only going to say them once, so pay attention!

1) You have to want at least one of these pictures.
2) You have to leave a comment.

ALMOST everyone is eligible.  The only people that are not eligible are those that read this blog who are also related to me.  If you are one of those relative-type people and want a picture, let me know and make my Christmas shopping easier!

The only caveat that I have is that I haven't blown any of these up past 5x7 yet, so I can't guarantee there won't be an imperfection or two. (Someone, whose name we won't mention, may have gotten some water spots on her lens and not realized that it was on there until after taking some pictures.  They don't show up on a 5x7, and I don't think any of these have any on them, but I don't know that for sure.)

I'm sorry, but the halibut is not part of the giveaway.  As much as I know you'd all love to hang a photo of a dead fish on your wall, the resolution of that particular photo is just too poor.

*I don't really know if a miner lived here, but mining was done in the area, so let's go with it, shall we?
**I do know that a rancher lived here.
***There may be something wrong with me.  It bothers me that all the other pictures have two word names, and this only has one. Welcome to my blog home and my little neuroses! 


  1. fun! I love the Maroon Bells one and Bear Lake. Enter me!

  2. Oh my, oh my, some of these bring back great memories from our trip to Yellowstone!! Please enter me. I haven't made up my mind on which one I like the best though. Need to spend some more time looking. Even if I don't win - would you enlarge one for me if I paid you? This is a great giveaway!!

  3. Love them all! Enter me, enter me! My husband has a true passion for photography and I would love to share one of these with him. Beautiful!

  4. ooooo-gorgeous. love all of them especially the storm clouds!

  5. Me too please!
    Wonderful photography!

  6. Wow, I love them all. My favorites are Maroon Bells, Stream, and Bear Lake (horizontal). Anyone would be beautiful on my walls :) Please enter me!!

  7. Amazing photos! I have silently enjoyed your photography (and the rest of your blog, of course) for a long while now. This may be my first time commenting though. We are house hunting and I would be thrilled to hang one of these in our new home.

  8. Love, love, love them friend! Jon would love them too!

  9. Wow! You have an AWESOME talent!! I know I'm new here, but could I be entered?? I love them all, so if I win I think I'll let hubby choose. : ) (I swear you took these photos in my parents' "back yard.")

    By the way, thank you for your prayers! It was nice to "meet" you. God bless!!

  10. How did I miss this??? Thanks for the reminder above! I want all of them!

  11. These are so beautiful, you *should* be proud. And am I allowed to steal one as a desktop background in the dreadfully likely event that I don't win?

  12. How did I miss this? They're ALL gorgeous and I want one! I don't know which one, but oh, they are all lovely!

  13. These are amazing!!! And how did I miss this??? Ugh! Thank-you for the reminder.

    Oh, and stupid blogger won't let me comment while logged in, so this is Rebecca from @ The Road Home.
