How many ways can you photograph a sunflower? The cover of this issue shows one perspective.

That’s the introduction to the April 2013 Digital Special online issue of the National Home Gardening Club magazine focusing on the “sampling of the entries” the magazine received for its 2012 photo contest.

The online magazine cover features the photograph of Rose Albano Risso of Manteca. It was one of the photographs she submitted to the 2012 contest. Her photograph of a damselfly resting on a wet plumeria leaf won second place in the competition.

Risso’s photographs are also featured in the book, “San Joaquin Valley Solutions,” published in collaboration with Pulitzer Prize nominee poet Michael E. Ford.

Risso works for the Manteca Bulletin.
