Many thanks to those of you who submitted photos to the first ever Friends of Sam Smith Park photo competition 2014.

The theme we chose for our inaugural shot at this was one that best portrays Sam Smith Park as a place for people to quietly enjoy nature in any season.

The first and second prize winners were Rena Sherring and Ron Smith.  The winning pics were posted earlier. Rena won "Peterson's Guide to Birds of Eastern and Central North America" and Ron won a much coveted FOSS baseball cap (still available - $15 as are T-shirts - $15)

We hope to repeat this next year with broader and different themes.  Categories will include birds, mammals, plants (flowers, trees, shrubs), insects and butterflies, people and scenery/landscape.

So, keep on clicking and saving the best for next year!

These are this year's runners-up.

Wonderful photos! When I see the last one- the city has just removed these benches, with no plans to replace them in the near future. What a waste!
