Introducing Delta406!
I recently wandered across your gallery and was quite interested in your photography of geological formations. I know that lining up the perfect shot can be a time consuming and tedious act and I truly love your perspectives. 



Can you please start by telling us a bit about yourself?

I'm a college student looking forward to a delightfully boring desk job, enjoying photography as a hobby on the side. My fun fact is that I moved perpetually

My Name is Mark Fox, I'm from Dunedin in the South island of New Zealand. When I was 5 I took a self portrait in a mirror with my dad's camera and that was the start of my love of photography. I have been a member on DA for 8 years (this is my second account) I can't remember how I found it. I am currently not working but I do make a little from various photography jobs

And of course, we held a contest!

There were a bunch of wonderful entries and the judges had a difficult time narrowing it down to three winners, but we did it! For a reminder about what the contest entailed, you can visit this journal:

Fungi - Geology Month: Intro and Contest Details!Hello and welcome to AnimalsPlantsNature's next themed month. During the month of July, we'll be showcasing...   
Fungi and Geology Photography!
Fungi photography is a subset of APN that that turns a common forest dweller into artistic beauty. This is the category you want to explore if you're looking for fungus, be it mushrooms and molds.  Geology photography is one of the most underutilized subcategories of APN! Geology photography can contain photographs of geologic structures such as volcanoes, caves, and mountain ranges. It could include something smaller like gemstones embedded with larger rock masses or crystalline sands. The photographers who submit to these categories may seem like they are limited in what they can photograph but the creative possibilities are endless!
Here is what you can expect to see from us this month:
