Winner: "Life In A Northern Town" By Ross Stone


"This photo was the last hurrah of my Canon 80D. The day before I took this photo, my camera and tripod took a header onto some rocks. This was morning when I discovered my camera would intermittently shut off and not focus properly. I remember pressing the shutter and nothing happened. I looked at my dying camera with tears in my eyes and I thought to myself, “How could I be so careless with my equipment?” I shook my head and flipped the camera switch on, off and on again. The camera turned on and I snapped a few quick photos and drove home...no radio, no thoughts, just silence.”

Canon 80D, EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM. 1/80th of sec., f/6.3, ISO 400.
