Ontario Parks Exposed

With over 2000 photographs submitted, amateur shutterbugs province-wide “exposed” the awesome diversity of Ontario Parks in our 2006 Photo Contest.

This is the second year for the contest a partnership between Pentax Canada, Harrowsmith Country Life and Ontario Parks. Entries included flowers, wildlife, landscapes, and people all taken in Ontario Parks! This year we included a new category,”Winter Memories”, which brought out the frosty adventurer in folks who submitted some fantastic shots!

Thanks to all the photographers who shared their captured moments with us!
