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.
