The Winning Photograph: A sweeping view of the Susquehanna River Valley in South Central Pennsylvania is the winner of INBOUND’s Fall Foliage Foto Contest. The photographer was Jason Brown, director of marketing and communications for Visit Hersey & Harrisburg.
The winning photo was taken on the last weekend of October at Hawk Rock, located near Duncannon, Pennsylvania, along the Appalachian Trail. In the photograph, one is able to see the Susquehanna River, which flows south into Chesapeake Bay.
The Runner-Up in this year’s competition is Stephen Braun, manager – tourism marketing, Macy’s. INBOUND’s team of judges found the photo to be intriguing, taken as it was from a “worm’s eye” point of view. Braun told us that This photo was taken at the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Northern Ohio.
“The park is known (in part) for its variety of trees and mineral formations. I grew up there and had never noticed the moss so prominently and in so many settings; the trees were also starting to display their fall farewell colors,” he said, “So I thought, let’s get in there and photograph the moss up close. Which was perfect for this autumn setting, with fallen leaves resting on the moss, soon to become part of it after winter snowstorms.”
INBOUND’s Second Annual Fall Foliage Foto Contest will take place at the end of next autumn, with entries confined to photos taken at the time by individuals who subscribe to the INBOUND Report. We will keep you posted on details.
