The Hill Country Alliance is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to raise public awareness and build community support around the need to preserve the natural resources and heritage of the Central Texas Hill Country. A photo contest is held each year to select images that represent the best of the Hill Country in these four areas: Hill Country People; Natural Treasures; Hill Country Enterprise; and Working the Land. A calendar is produced and sold as a fund raiser for the organization. The collection of photographs featured in the 2010 calendar were chosen from over 400 entries.
I was overjoyed to learn that my photograph of grapes entitled “Pick Me” was selected as the winner in the Hill Country Enterprise category and is the featured photo for the month of August. The calendar can be purchased at their website:
