I recently decided to enter a national photo contest and I need your help to decide which images I should submit. The contest is the Share the Experience 2010 Official Federal Recreation Lands Photo contest. Many of the places that I traveled to this summer fit the criteria of agency sponsored land where the pictures can be from (National Park Service, US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Mgmt, US Fish & Wildlife Service, & the New Melones Reservoir site of the Bureau of Reclamation). The prizes are pretty sweet, including cameras, trips, and the grand prize winner’s photo is on the America the Beautiful pass for the 2012 year.
Here is what I’m asking of you: please vote for your favorite (or top 2) photo in the comments section of this blog post. If you want to look at the pictures in a larger format, just click on it. I’ll be taking your votes strongly into consideration, along with my own opinion, when I decide which 3 photos to submit.
