2022 NFW photo contest
The 2022 National Forest Week photo contest received more than 50 entries, from forest and non-forest professionals.
Submissions depicted BC’s forested landscape, from colourful foliage and skylines to snow-capped mountains and snow-covered trails.
The winning photo was taken by Dave Eddy, RPF, of Coldstream. Eddy’s submission overlooks Upper Arrow Lake on a foggy morning, with “the moon was just perfect”:
The first runner-up is Edmond Wong, of Coquitlam. Wong’s photo is of a reflection on Buntzen Lake in late fall:
