The Natural Resources Council of Maine is happy to announce the winners of this year’s Fall in to Winter photo contest. Thank you to the more than 90 talented photographers who sent in their beautiful Maine photos for this year’s contest.
Thank you also to all of you who took the time to place your vote in this year’s contest. Contest winners were decided by popular vote. Having nearly 300 stunning Maine photos made choosing just one in each category difficult. We heard from many of you that they are all so beautiful it was impossible to pick just one!
And finally, a thank you to these Maine businesses for sponsoring the contest and providing wonderful prizes to the four winners: Reclaimed Maine Company, Monkitree, Goodpost, and Harvest Time Natural Foods. Please visit and support these businesses when you can.
Fall Outdoor Recreation Winner: Big Moose Pond by Lindsay Morales of Bangor “This photo is of my son at Big Moose Pond in Greenville on our hike up to Little Moose Mountain on the perfect fall day — clear skies and calm water. We stayed at this pond for about an hour — I was in awe of the views and my son had a blast exploring the area!”
Winter Outdoor Recreation Winner: by Joyce Gerardi of Bowdoinham “This photo was taken at Tacoma Lakes in Kennebec County. Our rescue dog Tonkabean (a 5-year-old English Mastiff) was fascinated by the live fish caught while ice fishing. It has become her favorite winter activity.”
Fall Landscape/Wildlife Winner: Sewall Pond in Arrowsic by John Jones of Georgetown
Winter Landscape/Wildlife Winner: “Feeder Magic” by Betty Olivolo of Kittery “I took this photo at my friend’s house at Sentry Hill in York, Maine. These common, yet colorful birds (bluebird and finches) paid no mind to the light snow falling while they entertained us with their busy feeding.”
