Special Mention
Banff Mountain Photography Competition


Sunlight streaming through mist from Wyoming's Yellowstone Falls made for a stunning backdrop for a lone tree in U.S. photographer Gunnar Conrad's September 2008 photo.

Although the vantage is likely a familiar one for visitors to the falls, he said in a statement, "being there at just the right time to catch the light was not only lucky but integral to getting a unique image."
