Northern Horseshoe Lake - It was a frosty and foggy 29 degree morning. Can't ask for anything more.

I strongly considered the lily pads and reeds of Marina Castillo - I feel like I've just fished there! Great angles & composition.

Moon_vulture was a close call as well - the subject is amazing. I never see salamanders! However, it's a bit dark. I'm sure it was a tough shot.

But my absolute favorite and the clear winner is the moose. Not only am I amazed at how close Ethan G. Knuti was able to get to the fearsome fellow, it is a beautiful photo. I almost feel that I could touch the velvet on the antlers. So, my choice is Ethan G. Knuti.

Thanks again for the honor of being a judge. I'd love to do it again sometime.

take care,
Rhonda
