Explore The Last Green Valley Photo Contest Winners Announced

The Last Green Valley, Inc. (TLGV) announces the 13 winning photos gracing its 2020 calendar.  TLGV’s “Explore the Last Green Valley” calendar for 2020 features magnificent photos of The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor.

The coveted cover shot was taken by Richard C. Tremblay of Putnam, CT. and is called “Fall Collection.” The photo is a beautiful image of a honeybee hard at work collecting pollen from a hydrangea.

The other winning photos are: “Eagle at Roseland Lake: Putting The Wings Out to Dry,: by Patrick M.L. Smith of Woodstock, CT.; Thawing Waters at Bigelow Hollow,” by F.P. Cusumano of Canterbury, CT.;  “Acorns in the Moss,” by Julia Roemer of Pomfret, CT.; “Fly Fishing on the Natchaug,” by Gloria Gelt of Woodstock, CT.; “Visitor From Baltimore,” by Ken Carpenter of Danielson. CT.; “Back to Breakneck,” by Sarah Hamby of Danielson, CT.; “Umbrella Boys,” by Smith; “A Peaceful Morning in Pomfret,” By Jimi Gothreau of Putnam, CT.; “Brunn Barn at Woodstock Fairgrounds,” by Gothreau; “Falling Leaves in Pomfret,” by Martin Stepalavich of Danielson, CT.; “Old Trinity Church,” by Samuel Alexander of Waterford, CT.; and “Captured in the Ice,” by Roemer.

This year, additional, smaller images were used throughout the calendar as well.  The more than 65 entries were chosen by a committee through a blind review of the photos.

“We had a lot of great entries and it was a difficult decision,” said Lois Bruinooge, executive director of TLGV. “We were able to include more images by using them as smaller photos throughout the calendar.”

The 2020 calendar is filled with interesting tidbits about the natural and cultural history of the National Heritage Corridor.  The calendar is on sale soon for $15.  Please call the TLGV Office at 860-774-3300 to order a copy. All proceeds support The Last Green Valley’s programs to protect our natural and historic resources. TLGV is a 501-c3 non-profit.
