The Fifth Annual Photo Contest

When it comes to natural beauty, the Finger Lakes region is never in short supply, so when we asked our readers to send in their favorite shots from the area, the response was amazing. Although a difficult task, our judges were able to narrow it down and choose the photos that truly captured the spirit and splendor of the Finger Lakes. Congratulations to our winners!
