Congratulations to the winners of our 2017-2018 Calgary’s Parks ‘n’ Paths Photo Contest! We received some great entries depicting the quiet natural areas and the vibrant urban settings found in Calgary’s parks and along the city’s paths.
Our judges chose “Sunset Gold – Bankside Fishcreek” as the first place winner. This photo was taken by Moe Haimour and depicts two stately trees silhouetted by a golden sunset. The photo was taken near the path running through Bankside Park. We’ve awarded Moe a $500 gift certificate to The Camera Store!
Second place in the judges category goes to Ronnie Chua’s picture “Peaceful Night.” This vivid photo is of the Reconciliation Bridge on the Calgary’s Bow River Pathway, and it shows the beauty of Calgary at night. Ronnie’s prize is 2 Night Getaway to Kananaskis Country (with an estimated retail value of $250) that includes:
- 2 nights at the Nakoda Resort
- voucher for buffet dinner for 2 people, and
- continental breakfast each morning
An honourable mention goes to “November Tonal,” taken by Luke Scanlon. This black and white photo of a dock has a misty quality. It captures the longing we experience in November for warmer weather and summer fun.
Another honourable mention goes to “Supper is Ready.” Photographer Tony LePrieur took a picture of an American mink, one of the many species residing in Fish Creek Park. And Tony happened to snap the picture as the mink was on its way to supper!
