The winner for February is the Star Color First Place Mist by Phil Thompson of Cumbria, England.
The February judge, Darrell McClanahan, PPSA, was ecstatic: “As they say, a picture speaks a thousand words, and this one speaks pure poetry. One must wonder how much planning and effort this required. I envision that Phil found this location some time before and imagined what it would look like on a frosty, calm morning with clouds drifting low, then with a beam of filtered morning sunlight striking the island perfectly as it resides in glassy water that provides the perfect amount of reflection. I'm pleased that Phil shared this work of art with us.”
