Photo of the Week: And the Winners Are . . .


















This Viewers' Choice winner captures the incredible image of a humpback whale breaching at the mouth of the Chesapeake. Photo by Brian Lockwood.

The above was just one of the stunners that took our breath away in this year's Save the Bay Photo Contest. In all, there were more than 1,200 extraordinary photos submitted from across the watershed--from the undulating Blue Ridge Mountains to the salty tidewater marshes. 

Each photograph--whether it be a dramatic yellow-crowned night heron in profile, or kids reveling in the afterglow of a summer sunset--captured a unique love for the streams, rivers, and Bay that many of us call home. Simply put, these images inspire us.
