• Youth 3rd Place Rebecca Smith Barrier Bay

    Judge Jeff de Booy’s comments: Somewhere over there is a rainbow.  There’s no place like the lake to witness and photograph this special moment. Just click your heels Rebecca, and you’re there again.

  • Youth 2nd Place Chloe Galloway Brereton Lake

    Judge Jeff de Booy’s comments: Nothing like a sunrise or sunset to either start or end your day. You were at the right time and place for this one Chloe. Fabulous.

  • Youth 1st Place Julia Armstrong Florence Lake

    Judge Jeff de Booy’s comments: This shows great promise, Julia. Excellent composition as water flows through the image but held fast by the rock at centre right. Keep up the great work.

  • Action 4th Place Alana Shewchuk Barrier Bay

    Judge Jeff de Booy’s comments: That special split second caught between past and future. Didn’t I just say that earlier, Alana? I love the way your subject seems suspended by two columns of water.

  • Action 3rd Place Kathy Doerksen Hunt Lake

    Judge Jeff de Booy’s comments: The iconic Loon, usually not caught in the spread wing moment as much as just gliding along the waters. Good catch, Kathy!

  • Action 2nd Place Terry Wilson Brereton Lake

    Judge Jeff de Booy’s comments: That special split second caught between past and future. I love the pigtail, Terry. Good effort.

  • Action 1st Place Kay Wagener Dorothy Lake

    Judge Jeff de Booy’s comments: This image captures the uncontrollable power of fast-moving waters. Well executed, Kay, utilizing black & white to emphasize force.

  • Nature 4th Place Kristin Harris Eleanor Lake

    Judge Jeff de Booy’s comments: You seem to be having an intimate moment with this chipmunk, Kristin. What is he trying to tell you? Perhaps to get his ‘good side.’ A quirky nature photo indeed, using a wide angle approach rather than the typical telephoto lens. Well done.

  • Nature 3rd Place Susan Desjardins Betula Lake

    Judge Jeff de Booy’s comments: What’s that lurking behind you, Susan! Could it be the creator of this beautiful web you caught? Utilizing the sun and the shadowy background of the cottage, is well executed.

  • Nature 2nd Place Jamie Partridge Big Whiteshell Lake

    Judge Jeff de Booy’s comments: This Shaggy Mane mushroom growing amongst low foliage and decomposing leaves, for me, Jamie, depicts the circle of life. Well cropped and processed.

  • Nature 1st Place Darcel Lecocq Brereton Lake

    Judge Jeff de Booy’s comments: Way to go Darcel! This capture of an eagle in flight I find impressive. One can almost feel the air beneath its wings. Good on you.

  • Scenic 4th Place Carla Harman West Hawk Lake

    Judge Jeff de Booy’s comments: Mood. You captured this nicely, Carla. Very artistic. So much one can read from this image. Going greyscale was a good choice. (The youngsters are standing on a dock that is 14 inches under water. Note the boat bumper).

  • Scenic 3rd Place Laura Hill Brereton Lake

    Judge Jeff de Booy’s comments: Can I say original? Your thought process seems to be working fine, Laura. Very creative. How are you going to top this next year?

  • Scenic 2nd Place Gail Nally Otter Falls

    Judge Jeff de Booy’s comments: This somehow reminds me of a J.M.W. Turner painting, Gail. Are you related? Absolutely beautiful. you were lucky to be there.

  • Scenic 1st Place Jocelyn Barnard Falcon Lake

    Judge Jeff de Booy’s comments: How dramatic this is, Jocelyn! Good composition, with the blazing sun on the left, countered by the larger cloud on the right. ‘Are we there yet” doesn’t apply here.
