The Celestron “World of Nature” Photo Contest, created in partnership with Trailer Life and Camping Life magazines, was open to readers of both Trailer Life and Camping Life. Contestants submitted photographs of landscapes, plants and animals from their camping trips from March – June 2012. Contestants competed for the grand prize, a Celestron SkyProdigy 130 Telescope (approx. retail value $699); first runner-up prize, Celestron AstromASTER 70AZ Telescope (approx. retail value $149.95); and the second runner-up prize, a Celestron Outland X 8×25 Binoculars (approx. retail value $49.95).
The Trailer Life and Camping Life staff poured over the nearly 900 entries received and decided on the top three photos:
Grand-prize winner, Victor Krasenics, for “Storm Over Mono Lake, Calif.” The first runner-up is Dave Christiansen for his photo, “Mother Fox and Her Pups in Charlevoix, Mich.” The second runner-up, CJ Boales, for her photo, “Two Fishermen at Caddo Lake State Park in Texas.”
Thank you to all of our contestants! The decision was tough to make as there were many spectacular entries this year and we hope you enjoyed sharing your beautiful photos with us. We are always looking for vacation photos, postcards and comments from our readers’ trips. Thank for making Trailer Life a part of your vacation, we look forward to delivering information about places, products and news to make your next trip memorable!
