Parks Photo Contest Winners

A few months ago I posted about the photo contest being run by the National Park Foundation: the Passport to the Parks Sweepstakes. The winners were announced this week.

I have to say, I’m a bit perplexed by the top prize winning photo. It hardly looks like a case of “treading lightly.” But then, I’m not sure what is going on in the photo, taken by Mike Mamrosh in Glacier National Park. Elf flying perhaps?

The second-prize winning photo, taken by Ramon Esparza, should have taken the top prize in my opinion. It’s a really great shot, and too cute for words. (Not that I’m biased or anything, just because it was taken in my backyard, the Arapahoe National Forest in Colorado.)

Check out all the winners.

One Response to Parks Photo Contest Winners

  1. I sorta like the elf jumping in the air–or is he standing on the distant mountains? But I agree, the second-place photo is a gem. So cute, and amazing how the photographer captured the leap!
