Winter Photo Contest

Congratulations to our winners of the winter photo contest sponsored by Focal Point Photography and Framing! 

The overall winner is Steph Irving's photo of the lineworker. "This photo told a complete story. It had beautiful composition and perfectly captured the moment of the Maritimes in the winter. 

The scenic winter category winner is Cathy Shewfelt's landscape. "The photo gave you the feeling of the cold and starkness of winter. It felt like stepping outside after a storm on a cold winter's day. It was well composed with good lighting." 

The people and animal category winner is Elaine Fage's photo. "The cat in the tree made us laugh and was wonderfully shot. Everything is in focus and the cat's expression kept drawing us back in." 

 

Thank you to everyone who participated and sent in photos! We loved seeing them all!
