Texas Gatorfest 2005

Yesterday, I went to the Texas Gatorfest in Anahuac, Texas with my husband. He had to shoot the fest for the newspaper.

I borrowed his Nikon D1h digital cameraand Nikon 50mm f/1.4 lens.Here's a sample of the pictures I took at the fest.

Mark M. Hancock tries to find an interesting angle to photograph a nearly 13-foot-long, 508-pound alligator captured on a private lake by Larry Janik of El Campo during the annual Texas Gatorfest at Fort Anahuac Park in Anahuac on Saturday, September 17, 2005. The festival offers cash prizes to hunters for the largest alligators captured during the event.

Check my husband's blog for more photos from the fest. BTW, he wrote my photo cutlines. That's why they're so perfect and professional.

I enjoyed the festival very much. I recommend it to everyone who loves adventure. However, it may not be as much fun for squeamish people.
