Today I was contacted by the excellent Matthew Herring, a UK photographer with an impressive body of photographic work, which you can see here. It seems that my photo selection for the Vis Dare “Snoop” was his award-winning photograph that brought him a first place win in a 2013 National Geographic traveller’s photography contest.

Per his request, I have since amended the original post with his name and links to his website, including the original photo, which includes a great blurb about the origin of the photo.

Thanks to Mr. Herring for so graciously allowing me to retain his photo – with proper links – on the original blog post, along with all the excellent VisDare entries that it inspired.
