I think one of the Photographer Port Macquarie also participated in this contest. I was looking for his gallery but could not find. Can you please give some idea if he participated or not?

Congratulations to Ken Hupila (FinnBay)! His photo of December 7 Lights was chosen as this year's winner by Karin Newstrom.

"This winter image stood out to me for a few reasons - the vibrancy, tonal range, and brightness of the Northern Lights is stunning. The stars and tree silhouettes add great context to the image and the trails in the snow in the foreground of the image draw the viewer into the scene. Great job!"


Ken wins a gift certificate to the Hide Away Supper Club in Babbitt, as well as a copy of Gene Prater's "Snowshoeing".
