2013 Photo Contest Winners

We would like to thank everyone for their entries. Not only are the photos wonderful but the stories that go with them are very touching. We had a panel of judges decide the winning photos. It was a very difficult task. Only one prize per photographer was awarded.
We will be using the photos and the stories that go with them in a photo book commemorating this year's 25th anniversary of the Friends of Pinery Park. Everyone that entered will have at least one or more of their photos and stories in the book. Because of space limitations a few photos may have to be cut. Your name will be published along with your photo and story.
