3rd Annual Photo Contest Winners

The third MCCB Photo Contest and Silent Auction attracted 22 photo entries. First place went to Kathryn Robertson’s (Mark’s wife) photo of Pictured Rock. Second place went to Kris Nitz and his photograph of a sunset over Isle Royal. Third place was won by Tami Port for her close-up image of a curled Monarch Caterpillar.

As usual, the photo silent auction garnered a flurry of bidding activity. Final bids ranged from $5 to $30, with many attendees heading home with one or more beautiful nature photographs at a bargain price.
