The 2009 Experience The Mountain Parks Photos/Videos Announced

Posted on: January 13th, 2010

On behalf of all of our contest sponsors, we are very pleased to announce that Rui Shan, of Edmonton, Alberta submitted the winning entry to our Reader Photo Contest!

Rui’s image is of a sunset over Moraine Lake – one of the most photographed landscapes in the Canadian Rockies. What makes his image so striking is the manner in which he captures the light on the mountain peaks and the presence of vivid colour throughout.
Our sponsors have teamed up to provide Rui with a dream travel video system and an exciting 9-Day holiday for two in Revelstoke and Eagle Pass, BC.
And the video system has been donated by The Camera Store, located in Calgary and it consists of a Sony HDR 520 video camera, telephoto lens, tripod, bag, book, cleaning kit & instructional DVD, with a total value of $1,800!

We’d like to thank all of our readers who submitted photo entries this year. Honourable mention goes to Barry Philippson of Ottawa, Ontario for his “Zen Moment at Lake O’Hara” – the image that we have selected as the new cover shot for our 2010 edition of Experience the Mountain Parks. (see below)
 Other finalists include Amanda Polson of Penticton, BC for her entry entitled “The Stunning Vast Expanse of the Illecillewaet Glacier“, (see below)
 and Roald van Heerde of The Netherlands for the entry captioned “Golden-Mantled Ground Squirrel Entertaining the Tourists“. (see below)
We have invited Rui to attend a formal presentation at The Camera Store in Calgary, so keep posted for pics of that ceremony in due course. We would like to thank our many sponsors for their kind and generous support of this, our 4th annual Photo Contest.
And on behalf of the entire staff of CMI Publishing, hearty congratulations to Rui, Barry, Amanda and Roald.
Bob Harris
