The 3rd Annual Nature's Colors Photography Contest sponsored by Blurb was a huge hit. In all, we received over 7,000 entries. The online Finalists Gallery was our largest ever, with some 80 total images, reflecting the excellent quality of the submissions. Congratulations to the winners and to all of the finalists, and thanks to everyone who participated for helping make this one of our most successful contests ever.

Sometimes, the best shots are right outside the back door. This photo was taken down at the end of Tom Porter's driveway.
He noticed the colors at the horizon as they were building, and he grabbed his DSLR and ran out to the road. Porter had
always wanted to capture the sunrise or sunset in fog like this, and he was rewarded with several "keeper" images.
