A Shot in the Park

A shotin the park Banner

“A Shot in the Park” is meant to encourage users, supporters, and photography enthusiasts to capture and share their favorite views, places, moments, and adventures in California State Parks. The theme of the contest is the exploration and enjoyment of all that our diverse California State Parks System has to offer.

Prizes for Best in Show and People’s Choice were generously donated by Nelson Photo, George’s Camera, and MK Envision Galleries.
