Our fall photo contest is off to a great start with some excellent entries this week. After plenty of back and forth discussion among the members of the editorial team, we declared Tom White’s image of Lockett Meadows the winner.
We especially liked the composition in this photo. The negative space of the sky reflected in the pond mimics the shape of the mountains in the background, and the ring of plant material floating in the foreground mirrors the curve of the pond’s shoreline. The image also shows the progression of the aspen from bright green to brilliant gold and finally to stark white bare trunks on the higher mountainside.
Congratulations, Tom, and thanks to everyone who shared photos with us this week. Tom, please send your mailing address to aarond – at – rionuevo.com and we’ll get a book on the way to you. Don’t forget — the people’s choice part of the contest continues until the end of the final week, so encourage your friends to like their favorites.
This week the theme is yellow and gold, so show us what you’ve got!
