Hello from Country Roads’ editorial department,
Each April for ten years, we’ve devoted Country Roads’ annual Outdoors Issue to sharing stories about wild places in the Louisiana and Mississippi region. This year we’d like to be sure that we let the pictures do more of the talking, by showcasing exceptional nature images by the photographers of the region. Do you have a particularly unusual, poignant, dramatic, or otherwise arresting photograph that captures wild Louisiana/Mississippi in a special way? If so, we’d love to hear from you.
In this issue we would like to showcase a single image from within the Louisiana/Mississippi area from each of six to ten photographers, and accompany each with a short text about the contributing photographer and the circumstances in which s/he captured the image. We’re trying to keep the definition of “Nature Photography” as broad as possible, and would really like to share some out-of-the ordinary images and stories here – more than just egrets and alligators, if you’ll pardon the truism. Have you ever photographed some aspect of the natural world in unexpected circumstances? Encountered an unexpected juxtaposition between the natural and the man-made, perhaps? How about wildflowers? Waterscapes? Reflections? Tree portraits? A shot that broadens our understanding of the natural world around us?
If you have a photo that fits any of the above descriptions we’d love to see it! Please let us know by Wednesday, March 4 if you have a photo you’d like to submit for consideration. We will be making final selections and gathering related information by Monday, March 9.
And please don’t hesitate to forward this information along to any amateur or professional photographers who might be interested in sharing their material from the wilds of Louisiana or Mississippi?
Feel free to call or email with any questions. And, as always, thanks for being a part of Country Roads!
