Winner of the Canadian Rockies Photo Contest

I asked five photographer friends, Mark and Leslie Degner, Alan Ernst (from Aurum Lodge), Royce Howland, and Roy Ramsay (from Outdoor Photography Canada Magazine) to judge the Canadian Rockies Photo Contest. Each photographer is intimately familiar with the Rockies and I wanted their opinions on the images. Of course anytime you judge art, you are going to get vastly different opinions and this was certianly the case where four different images were chosen as the ‘best’ by the five judges (only one image was chosen as best by two different judges – the winning image below). Nine images ended up placing in the top three spots. Of the images selected by multiple judges, the following images garnered the most votes:

Third Place:

Congratulations to Ian McGillvrey for his fine abstract image of Rampart Ponds in Banff National Park – see this link:

Second Place:

Two images tied for second place; Karen O’Grady for her wonderful image of Elbow Falls in Kananaskis Country – see this link.

And an infrared image made of Vermilion Lakes by Michael Jamessee this link

First Place:

And the big prize winner for a two night stay at Aurum Lodge and a portfolio critique by yours truly is Nigel Roberts, for his wonderful abstract of a forest burn in Kootenay National Park – see this link. Congratulations Nigel!
