2019 Down East Reader Photo Contest

Another year, another crop of more than 2,600 amazing photos submitted to our annual photo contest. We winnowed the submissions down to a batch of semi-finalists in three categories: wildlife, landscape, and lifestyle. From there, the judges settled on their faves. See the winners!
