Being a travel club for photography lovers we’re proud to present the winner of our first travel photo contest! We gave away an AWESOME prize: a Spider Holster Black Widow Kit! (a value of $65.99). It’s a camera holster to replace the ever annoying shoulder strap. I’ve been using it for months and LOVE IT! We’ll also start bringing an extra one for our members to try out on our adventures!
And now for the winner…
Our winner is travel club member Martin Cauchon from Quebec, Canada.
“The picture has been taken in the Portuguese cistern at El-Jadida, Morocco. As we are traveling with the kids (3 weeks in Morocco from Canada with 8 years twins 😉 ) I do not have the opportunity to bring a lot of photo gear with me… So, in this dark room, with a Nikon D90 (picture’s grainy over 800 ISO), a not that fast 18-200 lens (would have kill for my 24-70 2.8) and NO tripod, I did my best. Shoulder against a stone pillar, I held my breath and then click. I just can’t tell how happy I was with the result.”

The cistern was built in 1514, originally a warehouse, was converted into a cistern during the 16th century. The chamber in the picture was built with five rows of five stone pillars. You see the thin layer of water that covers the floor which has made the cistern famous (and great for photography too). The small beam of light that illuminates the chamber creates awesome reflections off the walls and columns which was captured so beautifully by Martin in his photograph.
