The first winner is @loveamylee!
“Chasing the sunset and found myself where the road ends and hardened lava fields begin. Just over the hill you’ll find Pele’s, the volcano goddess, molten lava trail colliding with the Pacific Ocean. A beautiful dance of waves crashing and lava steaming creating new earth.”
The second winner is @thespencercallahan!
“I took this picture last fall while I was home recovering from a concussion. My passion in life is traveling, but I was in a surf accident earlier in the summer that put a lot of my travel plans on the proverbial back burner. While I was home, I was able to really explore my hometown, which I hadn’t seen much of in the previous ten years. Photography is one of the things that helped me recover my head injury, and it also rekindled the love affair I had with Mobile Bay as a child.”
The third winner is @notwithoutmypassport!
“I was unexpectedly brought to BC under a dark cloud to confront and make peace with a loss that re-opened painful family wounds…but I left feeling soothed. Thank you, Tofino, for the healing light of these sunrises. During my week there, I woke up at the crack of dawn every morning to bathe in them, often on an isolated beach where I found solitude. Sometimes nature is all we need.”
