Grand Jury Winner

"There is just something amazing when capturing horses.  They are extremely intelligent, loving and smart animals and convey an enormous about of emotion through their eyes.  I felt like that was captured in this photo." - Ryan Abernathy

Runner Up

"One of the few pictures that I sat and enjoyed taking in.  The details in the picture are amazing.  Focal point.  Sharpness.  The attention to the hue of the eye colour and the contract of little things like the whiskers.  It was a great photo to keep coming back too." - Ryan Abernathy

Runner Up

"Really enjoyed this one because of the “connection” I had towards the wind.  One of my favourite places to snowboard is consistently hounded by winds gusting up to 100km/hr and frequently shuts down lifts because of the torrential wind.  Some days you just gotta go and get the turns in and you fight through it for the feeling of riding on air.  Even though googles were on, it told a great story." - Ryan Abernathy
