Second place was awarded to John Farr for "It's My Beach" and third went to Michelle Tinger for Dune Fences.  In Division B, first place was awarded to Jeff Hanke for "Come Lost Souls."  Second place went to Gene Viviano for his photo of the Boardwalk at Vereen Gardens and Deborah Al was awarded third place for her photo of the historic entrance to Yellowstone Park.  Congratulations to our winners and to all of the members who submitted entries.
