Climbing Photo of the Month

For a few years now, I have been reading Climbing Magazine. It has become my favorite climbing publication out on the market today. In every issue they have a photo of the month. Since I have started taking climbing pictures, I have wanted to submit a photo or two of mine to enter. Finally, my first week in Oregon, I posted a photo that I had taken the year before. A week later, I received an email stating that I had won. I was quite surprised. I thought that my photo was good, but that good? Once the feelings of being surprised wore off, I contacted Nate, the guy in the photo, to see if he minded if it were printed. He was alright with it, so I gave the people at Climbing the go ahead to print it.

Fast forward a few weeks and I got the newest issue of Climbing in the mail. As soon as I got it, I opened up to the section where it is always placed. Right there was my photo with my name. It was a very happy moment for me. Here is the picture of the photo in the magazine.

Here is the cover of the magazine, in case you wanted to pick it up at your local gear shop.

Here is the original photo.
If you want a background story to this photo, just ask and I will post it up in the next couple of days. Until then, enjoy the climbing eye candy.
