Baltimore Sun reporter Candus Thomson offers this guest post:
From the moody skies over the red ruins of Pecos Pueblo in New Mexico to a flock of birds wheeling in the fog over Pennsylvania’s Valley Forge, the essence of America's National Historic Landmarks was captured by hundreds of amateur and professional photographers in the 12th annual photo contest sponsored by the National Park Service.
Entries came from all 50 states and U.S. territories. The winning shot and the 12 honorable mentions along with the list of Maryland's 71 landmarks are on the agency's website (nationalparks.org).
