Grand Prize Winner
Roben Blakey
Congratulations to Roben Blakey who takes the Grand Prize in our Sony-sponsored 2011 Nature's Colors Photo Contest. We received over 10,000 submissions, making this one of the most successful contests we've ever run.

Blakey, who took this photo in Squaw Pass, Colorado, describes the scene, "On this particular day, I was walking through this area early in the morning, headed for a stand of really tall aspen. I just happened to turn around and look into the sun and saw this beautiful glow through the aspens behind me. It really took my breath away to be in that perfect moment."

As the Grand Prize winner, Blakey receives a Sony SLT-A55 DSLR, a Gitzo GT2541 carbon-fiber tripod and GH2780QR head, a PNY 8 GB Professional Series SDHC Class 10 Flash Memory Card, Tamrac's Evolution 8 Backpack (5788) and a Duggal 16x20 print of the winning photo.
