Announcing the Winner – Favorite New England Beach Photo Contest

We had a number of high quality entries to our “Favorite New England Beach” photo contest, and we would like to thank all our participants for their submissions.  We received 53 photos that showcased the beauty of our beaches, documented the fragility of our shorelines, and told stories of beach memories or management issues.  Keep an eye on our website and blog, as we’ll be featuring many of these photos over the next year!

Our judges have picked a winner, and each commented how difficult the decision was with so many great photos.  We think the winner they chose simultaneously speaks to the inherent beauty and fragility of our beaches, and celebrates the variety of habitats in the coastal zone – from intertidal to beach to dune to salt marsh.

And the winner of the iPad is…

    Congratulations Martina! You had some beautiful photos. My favorite was the waves crashing over the rock- beautiful! I’d have to say the real winners are the WHG who get to use some stellar photos over the coming year. Enjoy!
