This spring we held a photo contest for anyone who wanted to showcase their shutterbug talent and love for Great Bay. The categories included Flora and Fauna, Land and Waterscapes, and People. many thanks to everyone who participated. And congratulations to our winners, including 1st Place winner Johnathan Herrick (see above).
2nd Place: Lindsey Volhardt for Daily Catch. This photo was taken at the Discovery Center waterfront.
3rd Place: Bea Eldon for Sunset at Sandy Point. This photo was taken at the Discovery Center waterfront.
Honorable Mention-Mark Attardo, Spring in the Marsh. This photo was taken at the Discovery Center waterfront.
This is the first time we have held a public photo contest and we were so excited to see Great Bay and New Hampshire through so many different lenses. The 106 submissions were more than we could have hoped. Picking winners was a very tough decision for staff; in our eyes, every photo was great. We look forward to hosting another contest next year—and seeing Great Bay through a new set of eyes.
