Janet Koelling's piece, "Transitional Majesty" was awarded First Place in the Color Division during the artists' reception on Feb 19. Regarding Koelling's piece, Juror John Sunderland said,
"This piece drew me in and kept revealing deeper dimensions of interest. Koelling captured beauty in the color and portrayed amazing composition. It is the quintessential capture of lighting display that every photographer seeks to conquer."

Koelling titled the piece "Transitional Majesty" saying,
"It displays the transition from dark into light, from night into day, from autumn into winter. Ten inches of new snow blanketed the Sneffels Range near Ridgway, Colorado, creating a magical backdrop to the golden display of color on the Aspens. Clouds danced in the sunrise painting an ever-changing canvas of beauty and majesty."

"Transitional Majesty" is for sale during the entire month of the exhibit. Eye of the Camera Exhibition at Littleton Museum is the oldest photo exhibition in Colorado. 2015 is the 48th year.

LAA National Photo Show:1st place winning piece: TRANSITIONAL MAJESTY, a KOKOWORLD Photo by Janet Koelling

TRANSITIONAL MAJESTY by Janet Koelling, 1st place, LAA National Photo Show. 
So titled because this image displays transitions of dark into light, night into day, Autumn into Winter. Here is an account of the experience around receiving this image:
Sun danced through clouds, painting a warm, alpen glow on Mt. Sneffels in the San Juan Mountain Range of Southwest Colorado. The frigid fall morning welcomed 8 inches of crystal, white snow. While awaitng another burst of magical sunlight, a nice looking, gray-haired cowboy approached me, kindly warning, "You know this is private property. Could you please move your truck?" I replied, "Sure. Are you the owner?" "No," he stammered, "I'm ....not the owner," as if not wanting to reveal too much. As we rolled back down the road, I pondered the resemblance of the cowboy to the owner of the ranch that surrounds this portion of God's country and wondered, "Would I stay in the cabin overlooking this paradise on the most beautiful night of the year, if I were Ralph Lauren?"

Obachan in Fall

Amidst 4 days of pouring rain, we were fortunate enough to witness the changing colors of the Portland Japanese Garden's infamous Maple. The image is named Obachan for its grandmother type presence, The "Old Lady of the Forest"is an inspiration and mystery. Those that view it seem to see something different each time it is experienced. The twisting limbs and radiant colors send the imagination soaring.
