***** Finals for the Feb Photo Contest ***** NATIONAL AND STATE PARKS Time to vote [View all]


We usually take the top three vote getters in each preliminary thread for the final voting - plus the next highest vote getter to make it 10 photos.


I am pleased to show you the 10 finalists, and tell you that in the run-off the “Petroglyph National Monument, New Mexico” prevailed
BUT at the very end
the “Rocky Mountain Reflects” ended up to be the 10th one having the highest vote count by one vote. So they both got in for the finals.


Here they are:

Please vote, keep them kicked, and enjoy.
We love your comments.
Thank you all!
