2nd Place: Jeff Stover of Lock Haven, PA

Jeff captured this image during a routine hike with his son on Bald Eagle Mountain near Lock Haven. “We love this stretch of local trail and hike it often. We were having such strange weather this day, as it had rained at the lower elevations and snowed on the mountain. Just as my son was about to move into the snow, I captured this photo of one of my favorite trails.”

3rd Place: Patrick Greenabaum of Cogan Station, PA

Patrick often crosses Lycoming Creek near Williamsport and thought to revisit this view right after snowfall. “I used to play around down here as a kid, so this creek and the river have always been in my life.”

2nd Place: Beverly James of Dallas, PA

“The river town of Tunkhannock becomes a patchwork of color each October during the Airing of the Quilts event. It’s a grand affair! The entire town celebrates with live demonstrations and quilt displays. This river town has really been revitalized and is a joy to visit.”


3rd Place: Toni Viola of Lock Haven, PA

“I love living and working in Lock Haven because it is such a friendly town.  It’s the type of place where everyone still says hello when you walk down the street, and there is always something to see or do down by the river or in the surrounding state parks.”

1st Place: Carissa Phillips of Berwick, PA – Age 17

“It was Thanksgiving morning and I was exploring around a friend’s barn while my Dad and my brother were working on their treestands.  I was looking around for an owl to photograph when the windows caught my eye and I thought they looked cool and I realized that I never noticed them before.  I remember that day vividly because it was absolutely gorgeous and nature provided many colorful shades of green, browns and yellows.  This is a special place to me because I've been going there since I was born to hike, sleigh ride, look for wildlife and visit with family and friends.”


2nd Place: Izaiah Calpin of Trucksville, PA – Age 14

"I treasure the hidden beauty of Buttermilk Falls in the small river town of Falls, PA."
