I was raised in a close relationship with the natural world. Some of my earliest and fondest nature memories are from upstate New York, and all these years later, they remain quite visceral. Every summer my family would camp and hike in the Adirondack mountains and I still recall the textures of different tree barks […]
Unruly-e writes about his Filterstorm award winning image Goodnight, Irene. In late August of last year, Hurricane Irene became only the second tropical cyclone in recorded history to make a direct hit on the state of Vermont. Over the course of one day, it dumped eleven (that’s 11!) inches of rain, overwhelming nearly every river […]
Cindy Patrick on her Co-Winning Beachlife Category image Waiting for the Perfect Wave. I absolutely love the beach! I have friends who own a house in the Hamptons (NY) and I try to spend a few weeks out there every summer. I like to roam up and down the beach and just capture people enjoying […]

Winner of the ScratchCam category. I had just come out of a supermarket, heading to my car in the parking lot when, suddenly, I was struck by the beauty of the sky and clouds above my eyes. It was a lovely day in July, just before sunset, and I caught the breeze of mild summer […]

Tony Docherty on DANDELION WISHES – WINNER OF THE PEOPLE/PORTRAIT CATEGORY. Dandelion Wishes is actually a combination of two images. I first shot the Dandelion while out walking. It was such a good specimen that I knew I had to use it but it sat on my phone for weeks. Over the years I’ve taken […]
