‘Focus on Snoqualmie’ Winning photo Announced, Featured on FREE Watershed Poster

Remember that Snoqualmie Valley photo contest that we told you about last summer?  Well, the winner was selected and HINT, it’s someone whose photos you might be very familiar with if you follow us on Facebook. Over the years we’ve shared many of his Mount Si and Valley pictures.

The Snoqualmie Watershed Forum recently released its 2015 Snoqualmie Watershed poster, featuring the winning entry from last summer’s photography contest, Focus on the Snoqualmie…. and the poster is free while supplies last.

Danny Raphael’s winning photo shows a dramatic Mount Si at sunset with a foreground of plowed fields. Raphael, a North Bend resident since 1998, was awarded a framed copy of the poster at the Snoqualmie Watershed Forum meeting on November 18th. He is is a self-taught amateur photographer whose favorite subjects are Mount Si and family members.

Four additional entries were also incorporated into the poster design: photos by Bill Cottringer of North Bend, Pat Dunn of Oxbow Farm, Randy Green of Carnation and Mount Si High School sophomore Claire Meyer.

The photo contest and poster celebrate the Snoqualmie Valley and everything residents cherish about it and hope to protect. The poster will be distributed free throughout the watershed for display in libraries, businesses, schools and community locations.

To request copies, just contact Polly Freeman at 206-477-3724 or polly.freeman@kingcounty.gov. And let feel free to let her know if you have ideas about getting the poster out to a wider audience in the Valley.

Congratulations to Danny!
