Our February Nature Spirit photo winner is Al Ochsner, an art teacher and yoga instructor who lives and works in Geneva, Illinois.
Al photographed an amethyst geode then manipulated it in Photoshop, creating this interesting image. He placed our Crystal Life store in the middle!
Al is a local favorite, bringing a sense of humor to all his art work and teaching Geneva’s youth many forms of art, including digital imaging. Evenings he heads over to the yoga side, teaching at local health clubs.
The theme for our February contest was to take a stone or tree photo and manipulate it in some artistic manner…Al wins a $50 gift certificate to Crystal LIfe!
The March contest heads back to the figurative realm…that is to send us (firstname.lastname@example.org) a photograph you have taken (straight, not manipulated) of an animal image as seen in a tree or rock or other nature setting such as in water or clouds. You have all of March to search out this nature spirit…winner receives a $50 gift certificate to Crystal Life and all entries are automatically entered into our annual Nature Spirit Photo Contest.
