- congratulations to Nancy James of Millville, NJ!

Nancy provided us with a bit of background about her winning photo "My visit to the Grand Canyon, in April 2011, was the trip of a lifetime and a gift from my wonderful son, Michael. Our vacation in Arizona yielded some 2,000 photos, including this shot of Pima Point along the South Rim of the Grand Canyon at sunset. It was thrilling to watch the explosion of vibrant colors emerge in the changing light. Nothing could have prepared me for the grandeur and the overwhelming beauty of this magical place."
