Wow, that's news to me (first I heard about it)! Laz Ruda warrants mention, with three entries among the winners!
This is my shot, which won second-place in the "Togetherness" category:

Many congrats, all - the images here are amazing, can't wait to see the rest of them! I am in total awe of the talent here.

Linda - I think I remember you posting that shot a few months ago...? I recall fawning all over it then (I was in good company, I believe there were many of us!)! I am so pleased to see that it did well. Breathtaking.

Congratulation to all winners. Great shots!
The one of Keri I've seen in an other contests already, wondering that this one was not in the top line so far.

I've mananged a "Honorable Mentioned" this times with a photo, that have been successful in other competitions already.

Sorry, but I don't know how to get the image itself posted in this thread.

Again, exellent pictures, well done (-;

Congrats to all! Wonderful pictures indeed!

Mine was a sad one, but the conservation category is not a happy spot.
