2018 Employee Contest Winners

2018 proved to be another incredible year for the Share the Experience Employee Photo Contest. The quality of the photos was superb making it ever more difficult for our judges to pick a winner.

The winning photos were selected based on their exemplary photographic qualities and their amazing representations of the spectacular recreational opportunities offered through our federal lands. We are proud to present the 2018 Winners.

The Grand Prize photo was taken by Robert Burton, National Park Service, while visiting Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Here is what he had to say about the photo:

“This image was captured at Collins Gap during the latter part of summer. The elevation at the gap is 5,726 feet, so temperatures remain cooler and the Turks Cap flowers bloom later. This day, the flowers, and the Pipevine Swallowtail butterflies, were numerous. Partly cloudy skies helped filter otherwise harsh sunlight. And, the Spruce-Fir Forest provided a kind background and perfect bokeh. The butterflies were busy with the flowers and took little notice of my presence, allowing me to take my time and capture this image.”
