At River Day: These folks took their best shot!


Monday, 8/9/2010 12:00am

Not only did history buffs and ecologists come together for River Day at Van Cortlandt Manor on Sunday, but the event drew a number of photographers angling to win a new camera.

River Day, a celebration and exploration of the Croton and Hudson Rivers from the late 18th and early 19th centuries to present day, is an August highlight at this Croton gem.

This year, thanks to sponsor Fujifilm, Historic Hudson Valley held a photo contest, asking visitors to capture the event and post their best shots on Flickr for a chance to win a digital camera.

The day was filled with photo opportunities, and our three winners were the tops in capturing them.

Winners were selected based on their ability to illustrate the theme and spirit of River Day 2010.

Congratulations to all of our River Day Photo Contest submissions for taking on the task. Shown here is the work of grand prize winner Lisa M. Amberger, who won a Fujifilm FinePix HS-10 for her efforts.

Two runner-up prizes of Fujifilm FinePix Z700EXR cameras went to David Mednick and Jeffrey Breitman

Here are all the winning entries posted on our Flickr page.

Connect with us there and post YOUR best shots from any of our sites...or anywhere in the Hudson Valley!
