It wasn’t easy to pick only 30 finalists in our 2013-14 Online Photography Contest. We had nearly 5,000 entries, after all — and, to borrow a favorite phrase of Photo Editor Jeff Kida, “you brought it!” As fun as it was to sift through these spectacular images, it also made the task of narrowing them down that much harder.

That said, it’s finally done, and the finalists are up on our Photography page. The photo above is John Tennant’s, and it’s a finalist in the Landscape category. To see the other 29 finalists in the Landscape, Macro and Wildlife categories, click here.

Winners will be published in the September 2014 issue of Arizona Highways.

Friday Fotos: Arizona’s Many Spectacular Forests

Doug Koepsel | Lockett Meadow

“The forest is a peculiar organism of unlimited kindness and benevolence that makes no demands for its sustenance and extends generously the products of its life activity; it affords protection to all beings, offering shade even to the axe-man who destroys it.” ―Buddha

Let’s love and protect our forests… after all, they’re pretty remarkable.

Enjoy!

Abstract painting is abstract. It confronts you. There was a reviewer a while back who wrote that my pictures didn’t have any beginning or any end. He didn’t mean it as a compliment, but it was. —Jackson Pollock
