Congratulations to Michael Tooke of Coppell, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Michael is a first time winner to our contest and follows last week’s winner,  Marjan Smeijsters.

If you would like to participate in the Flickr Photo of the Week contest, all you need to do is upload your photo to our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took earlier than the current week, but we are hoping that the contest will inspire you to go out and shoot something fantastic this week to share with Art&Seek users. If the picture you take involves a facet of the arts, even better. The contest week will run from Monday to Sunday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Monday afternoon. We’ll notify the winner through FlickrMail (so be sure to check those inboxes) and ask you to fill out a short survey to tell us a little more about yourself and the photo you took. We’ll post the winners’ photo on Wednesday.

Now here’s more from Michael:

Name: Michael Tooke

City of residence: Coppell

Title of photo: Blood Moon

Equipment: Nikon D7000, Tamron SP 70.0 – 300.0mm

Tell us more about your photo: Lunar eclipse as seen from Coppell, Texas. An f-stop of f/5.6 and a shutter speed of 1 second was used at ISO640.

Cloud coverage the afternoon of gave worry that we wouldn’t get to experience this rare event. While it was still oddly cold, we were given the gift of a clear sky and no wind. An amazing experience, not just to see the moon turn red, but also slowly see the full moon lit surrounding become dark.
