People’s Choice Grand Prize: Photo by Lorna Littrell
2nd Place: Photo by Karen Blackford
3rd Place: Photo by Amy Tripp
Not only was this year’s Sanibel Shell Show a “virtual” success, it also gave us the opportunity to delight in some spectacular new photography, courtesy of their photo contest sponsored by Beachcombing Magazine.
The shell photo contest featured seven categories, plus Sanibel Stoop and Favorite Shell photos. Shell aficionados from 15 countries submitted a total of 424 entries.
Nearly 300 votes were cast for the People’s Choice award, won by Lorna Littrell for her photo of a horse conch at sunset.
Second-place winner was Karen Blackford, who submitted a photo of shellers in a tide pool along Middle Gulf Drive, followed by Amy Tripp’s third-place winning photo of a zig-zag scallop.
Shelltastic photos, don’t you agree?
