The Santa Maria Fair Theme was "Picture the Fun." I had recently made this photograph at the start of The Narrows trail at Zion National Park. Everyone is in the shadow of canyon walls, and the display of the cellphone shows up well. I liked the result, but I had no plans for it. It fit the fair theme so well, though, that I made a print and entered it at the fair. It received First Place, Best of Show, and the Minetti Award.
