Special thanks to our judge Linda Roesch. Linda’s comments about this year’s submissions:

The entries this year were extraordinary! Congratulations to all who entered and apologies for not being able to give an award to each person. We are blessed with so many beautiful sunsets on the lake and was pleased to see many striking images. It is interesting to see so many views of our beloved lake. Congrats to those who also captured other living creatures among us like the heron, pet dog, ducks, a loon, butterfly and ever present dragon flies. And to the Young Adults, congratulations on your entries!
