October 2020

Members of the UT Rowing team participate in an early morning practice along the Tennessee River on October 02, 2020.

October was a great month for visuals from the start. On the second day, I found the UT Rowing team practicing on the Tennessee River during my morning drive into work. Those photos set the tone for the rest of the month and eventually brought home my first Best in Show in the UPAA monthly image competition. You can read about the winning image and my process for making it on the UPAA Blog.
