There were 37 photos submitted from 15 Individuals. The following contest winners were announced at the 2017 AGM:

First Prize: IM Gadgets 12.0 MP Waterproof Action Camera

Winner: David McNeil
Mother Duck
Judges Comments:
While technically well framed and crisp, there is a softness to the elements. The burbling water around the mother, the fluffy down of the ducks and, the golden peach cloud wisps reflected in the water. We loved that this captures the connection of mother and child as the ducklings are a perfect extension of her form. This wonderfully shot little flotilla of ducks charmed us all.

Second Prize: $50 Gift Certificate to Sharbot Lake Country Inn
Winner: Guy MacLeod
Winter Skating Trail
Judges Comments:
Shooting into the sun is not easy but here the light is mastered to tell us a winter story. The sweeping arch of the path pulls you into the frame and practically onto the ice. First it was the technical merit that grabbed us but the overall interest of the shot won us over. Clearly an outstanding winter afternoon at the cottage.

Third Prize: 2 Cineplex Movie Tickets
Winner: Colleen Smyth
Judges Comments:
While there were many sunsets this year, the colours captured here stood out. More than just the usual orange and red, the strong yellows, ochres and golds contrasted beautifully with the darkened shore and the indigo evening sky. This play of dark and light created an uncertain mood.

Winner: Barb Wilson
Good Morning Sunshine
Judges Comments:
With its repetition and transparency, this fantastic frost shot on the windshield captured a wonderful pattern in an imaginative and fanciful way.
