And the winner is…

Week one Winer Hoekman

Wow, what a beautiful assortment of entries to choose from this week! While the rest of the country is anxiously awaiting spring and the melt of massive amounts of snow that have made winter miserable, those of us lucky enough to live in the West have been out enjoying the unexpected beauty of winter.

After much deliberation, our winner this week is Chuck Hoek’s photo taken in the aptly named Snow Canyon State Park in Utah. Our eyes were drawn not only to the mystery of the fog in the background, but to the textural quality of the snow on sandstone in the foreground.

Congratulations, Chuck! Please email aarond – at – and we’ll mail you a book.

Our theme this week is historic places, and we’re looking forward to your entries. Don’t forget to remind your friends to like your entries on our Facebook page — the peoples choice award goes to the entry with the most likes.
