And the winner is…

Halsey Hendrickson of Saint Helens, Oregon! Her wedding-day photo taken on the beach in Lincoln City garnered more than 1,000 votes, earning her two nights’ stay in an Oregon State Parks yurt.


The runners-up were:

Tiffany Johnson of Coos Bay with her photo “Jump!!! (Annika).”


Jala Smith-Huys of Portland with her photo “Three generations enjoying a moment at Haystack Rock.”


and Michelle Langer of Oregon City with her photo “Fun in the Sun Spring 2012.”


Together, these four images well express the joy and peace people experience on the coast. In fact, we liked them all so much that we have decided to additionally award each of the three runner-ups a 12-month day-use pass good at all Oregon state parks!

The four finalists’ photos will be on display as part of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department’s exhibit at the Oregon State Fair beginning next Friday, August 23rd; please stop by to see them in person.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to create such an impressive collection of images celebrating Oswald West’s legacy during this “beach centennial.” We hope to post some staff favorites in the coming weeks.
