Committee for Green Foothills 2019 Photo Contest was a great success with almost 450 entries of images that beautifully portray the natural environment of San Mateo and Santa Clara County in all its unique glory. This made our task of choosing the prize winners difficult, but we are sure you will agree that the winning photos are spectacular. Congratulations to our 2019 Photo Contest winners: Preston Carter, Aman Vora, and Mark LeClair.
First place winner Preston Carter submitted a stunning image of an overlook on Windy Hill looking toward the ocean. If you look closely, you can even see a deer on the nearest ridge. He will be receiving a nature photography tour of Jasper Ridge led by Dan Quinn.
In close second is Aman Vora’s inspiring moving photo of Martin’s Beach, where we recently had a big victory. He will be receiving $100 in Carrot Cash to be used at any Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market Association (PCFMA) Farmer’s Market.
And in third place, Mark LeClair sent his incredible capture of a bald eagle in flight in Milpitas, CA. He will be receiving 2 vouchers for Spade and Plow produce boxes.
Many of the photos we received deserve honorable mention so keep an eye on our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn feeds for them over the next few months. Maybe yours will be one of them!
Each photo entry truly brought our local natural world to life! All photos that were submitted will help us provide a powerful visual when we communicate the importance of a resilient region where wildlife thrive, everyone has natural beauty to enjoy, and communities live in balance with nature.
Congratulations again to our 3 winners!
