Honorable Mention: Northwest fun and adventure
Photographer: Susan Bates, Bellevue
Photo taken: Aug. 1, 2010, Vancouver Island, B.C.
Photographer's description: "People aren't the only ones cooling off on a hot day! Here is my dog Sabre's rendition of walking on water at a beautiful lake on Vancouver Island. Taken using a Canon PowerShot G10, and purposefully taken looking directly into the sun so as to catch his silhouette."
Judges' comment: "The comical body language of Sabre reminds me of a young girl's music box with the ballerina pirouetting when opened. The purposeful use of backlighting cleans up the image with only black-and-white tones with blue sky and water."
