Honorable Mention: Northwest fun and adventure
Photographer: Lisa Lombardo, Kent
Photo taken: May 2, 2010, at Copalis Beach, Grays Harbor County
Photographer's description: "Taken during the last morning of the razor-clam dig. I loved all of the people milling around, and that one woman who was sitting. It really captured what was going on at the beach at that moment. Taken with a Sony A300, at 1/500, f7.1, ISO 100."
Judges' comment: "The unique cropping of this image, shooting at a low angle and using a telephoto or longer setting on a zoom lens to create depth, contribute to make this photo stand out. Overall, a nicely executed image that artistically puts the viewers on the beach."
