Winner: "Ahwahnee Meadow" By Douglas Croft


"This stand of trees in Ahwahnee Meadow had always intrigued me, but I'd never been able to find a composition that did it justice," explains Croft. "On this winter afternoon, the trees were illuminated spectacularly against the shadowed walls of Yosemite Valley."
