    Photo must have been taken by the individual who posts it (you can have help posting your images though).
    Photos may be from any year.
    You may submit up to ten images each month.
    Photos can be uploaded to the board (preferred method), or they may be hosted on your own server or hosting service (such as photobucket)
    Submissions will be accepted through December 31st, 2013.
    Photographers retain the rights to their photographs.
When posting, please refrain from posting HUGE image files. An ideal size is 640 x 480. If you use the "attachment" button, the image will be resized automatically for you. (Instructions for using the attachment tool: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=1469&p=3900#p3900)

It would be great if you can share as much information as you can about the photo.

Prize:
The winner of this year's contest will receive a copy of "Adventure Travel Photography" by Nevada Wier, as well as Butterfly Garden seeds from American Meadows.


Judging:
This year's contest will be judged by Kristen Anderson in memory of her mother, Lorraine Anderson. Lorraine was affectionately known by many as "the Wildflower Lady". Lorraine provided weekly wildflower reports on BoundaryWatersCanoeArea.com for years. A memorial bench for her can be found at Bear Tree Park in Grand Marais, MN.

While on a hike just off of the Gunflint trail I came across some wildflowers.

I am an amateur photographer but enjoy every moment of it. All of these photos were taken on camping trips in the BWCA or on trails just off of the Gunflint Trail.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

I've been researching the Boundary Waters area, and longing to travel to such a beautiful place! Thank you all for sharing your photos. A few places I have visited in Colorado, Washington, or Missouri have had some of the same species seen in your area, so I'd like to share some photos as well. :D
