2016 NWC Photo Contest Winners!
Regarding his selections for the North Woods Conservancy photo contest, Harvey said “Photography is the ‘Art of the Moment’! Several things make for a great photo. Ask yourself...Is it a moment? Have I captured something that creates that feeling of wishing to have been there at that moment when the photo was taken. When you have captured one those moments your work may not be done. I look for good composition and balance. As in art, does it draw my eye around the image in a comfortable flow? Are horizons justified? Is the image pleasingly sharp and the color natural? “
“In this instance I was looking for images that exemplify the moments that make Seven Mile Point NWC the amazing place people love to visit.”

The 3 winning photographers were also asked two questions: What draws you to the Keweenaw? What do you like most? Their answers were similar with love of Lake Superior being central. Their own voices are important, however, so we want to share them here. See these comments when viewing each photo.
