First published photograph in a magazine

Published December 22nd, 2011

It really surprised me, because it was National Geographic itself that published my photo.

The competition wasn't worldwide, but along the Nordic countries; Finland, Sweden, Norway, Iceland and Denmark. You'll be able to see the photo in the newest NG issue in the Nordic countriesThey gave me Pentax k-5 camera with a basic zoom lens, which is great (Finnish page of the competition)
