Thank you to everyone who submitted such wonderful photographs to our annual photo contest.
We have to admit, it was difficult to choose our favorites! With the help of local photographers Ken Garrett and Callie Broaddus, we narrowed the submissions to five finalists from each of the four categories.
Now, we need your help to select the winners! Voting is easy — first, check out all the photos in the slideshow! Then, use the form to select your favorite finalist from each of our categories: Beautiful Landscapes, Native Plants and Wildlife, People and Places, and the Youth Category (ages 17 and under).
Winners will be announced in a few weeks after public voting closes on November 22 at 11:59 p.m.
