Youth Theme: Nature is Beautiful

First Place: Brenden Slocum (17)

I was sitting in my room with the window open, and I heard a crunching sound from across the street. I look over to see the coyote devouring a squirrel. By the time I got my camera out to take a picture, it was licking its chops after its meal.

Second Place: Carris Pope (11)

Adult Theme: Reflections

First Place: Jeanne Scheper

February 2022, Crystal Cove, friends at sunset. I like how the reflection is more animated than the real and the texture of the reflection in the water/sand.

Second Place: Marian Waterman
