Each month, we feature one of the photos from our 2020 Focus on Woodbury photo contest. This month, we asked hobby photographer Kent Nye to tell us about Spring Storm, which took second place in our Wildlife & Nature category.
Tell us the story behind the image. This image was taken on Easter Sunday in 2020. Normally, I am with family celebrating the holiday, but due to COVID, we stayed home. So, instead, I decided to go out for a walk in the neighborhood and take photographs during the spring storm. [I captured] the beauty of two season as they collided with each other. The duck landing in the water was a fitting tribute to the beautiful scene that unfolded in front of me.
What’s your favorite thing about the image, or what struck you about the scene and inspired you to take it? I really liked the transition of two seasons blending together on this day.
What kind of camera did you use? Nikon D610.
What’s your photography background? I have been a hobby photographer for many years, focusing mainly on landscape photography.
