Award winning Southern Oregon Photographer Sean Bagshaw's photo, Lunar Eclipse Over Mt. Shasta, is now on view at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History
in Washington, DC, one of the most prestigious and highly-visited museums in the world, running from mid-November through April 2009.
Says Mr. Bagshaw about the multi-stage eclipse photo "Photographing an entire lunar eclipse can be particularly elusive. I am very grateful that I had the chance to create the image. I doubt that I will get a similar opportunity again in my lifetime."
It has won numerous awards and has been selected as the Category Winner for the Creative Digital category in the 2008 Windland Smith Rice International Nature's Best Photography Awards. Sean's photo was selected from more than 20,000 entries and will be featured as one of the 100 winning or highly commended images in this year's competition.
According to the competition organizers the photography honored by the Nature's Best Photography Awards serves to inspire millions of people worldwide.
The award-winning photograph has been published in the 2008 Fall Awards Special Collector's Edition of Nature's Best Magazine.
Winning images are now posted on NaturesBestPhotography.com. In addition, the Nature's Best Photography Awards will be displayed in galleries on AOL Pixcetera and MSNBC.
