Each year The Weather Channel holds an “It’s Amazing Out There Fan Photo Contest,” a program to pick the top three submitted photos. The contest last year attracted over 50,000 entries.

This year, Spillville resident Joyce Meyer submitted a photo which was selected one of the 100 semifinalists in the contest. Her photo wasn’t selected for one of the three to win cash prizes, but she says, “I’m honored to be picked as a finalist in this contest where many contestant finalists have been published or work for amazing publications like National Geographic Magazine.” The judges in the contest agreed, saying, “With so many stunning submissions, it’s a daunting task for our panel of judges to narrow it down, much less pick a winner.”

Photo made the USA Today

Last week was a great week: I got my photo of Decorah Iowa in the USA Today in their travel section highlighting one picturesque small town from each state in the county. Again on Monday I found out I have two photos in Our Iowa Magazine Feb/March 2017 (Such a quality magazine that I’m so proud to be in it among the other talented people), Then I had one of my winter scenes in The Cedar Rapids Gazette, and 2 snow photos on KWWL TV, and found out that Monday this photo would run front page in The Decorah Public Opinion (Decorah Newspapers) and this week I will be on their website with a winter scene. Remember to shop my Etsy Shop and keep checking in on latest arrivals here too. This week there has been a run on church window suncatchers/ornaments that I have been busy designing and are only on my facebook page as I’m taking orders. When they come in I will post on the Etsy site.
