Grand Prize

The Grand Prize photo was taken by Michael Porter, National Park Service, while at Kenai Fjords National Park. Here is what he had to say about the photo:

"It was taken on my first trip to Kenai Fjords National Park in July of 2022. The beauty of Spire Cove was matched only by the difficulty of shooting from a moving boat."
