Lansdale Photographer Wins PA Parks and Forests Foundation Photo Contest
(Camp Hill, PA)-Scott Hafer of Lansdale, PA won Best In Show, Popular Vote in The Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation’s (PPFF) Through the Seasons 2015 Photo Contest. The winning photograph featured an image of a snowy road in Ole Bull State Park.
“I loved the way the freshly fallen snow was laying on the tree limbs and the road. The road leads you through the picture. The contrasting textures and colors capture the day,” Scott says. “I am truly thankful for the opportunity to share my visions of what Pennsylvania has to offer.”
The PPFF contest included six categories: Black and White, Capture the Seasons, Friends and Family Fun, Young Photographers (photographers aged 10-21), Historical Gems, and Nature Up Close. All photos had to be taken in a Pennsylvania state park or forest and judging was done by popular vote on Facebook and critics’ choice.
