Honorable Mention: Northwest fun and adventure
Photographer: Tom Ringold, Edmonds
Photo taken: Feb. 19, 2011, Golden Gardens Park, Seattle
Photographer's description: "The wind was howling and the day was crisp and clear. I thought I might see some drama down at the 'Gardens.' Taken with a Canon 7D with 100-400 zoom."
Judge's comment: "Fun action, nice composition, good colors and multiple layers. A telephoto lens and plenty of depth of field compress the layers and keep everything in focus."
