Richard Warner’s Southern beech (with mountains) was the inspiration for the contest and, as it turns out, the winner with 28 points. Though just barely. Richard’s take is a $60 gift certificate to Stone Lantern, and world fame, of course.
Thanks to all who entered and congrats to the winners!

And to the Judges too
Thanks to all of you who sent in your choices (21 people in all). Unfortunately, none of you picked all three winners, let alone picked them in order of finish, so we have no winning judges. Next time maybe.
James Miles Juniper somewhere in the high Sierras, won second place; just 2 points behind first place. James wins a $30 gift certificate to Stone Lantern.
Aaron Khalid’s Engelman spruce leaning over a blue lake in Banff, Alberta won third place; just one point behind second place, and is worth a $10 gift certificate to Stone Lantern.
Rodrigo Sousa’s Almond came in forth; just one point behind third place and just out of the money.
