Boats winner

Boats winner

Berl Michael Thomas is the winner of this week's Reader Sunshot theme, "Boats" for his photo Virginis taken in Alaska last July while on a grizzly bear photo safari. He used a Nikon D300s for the shot. "After we went to Brooks Camp for four days we drove from Anchorage to Homer," Thomas writes. "Along the Spit, there was a junkyard filled with old boats in various states of decay. Virginis caught my eye because of the red color and texture. I got lucky with a nice blue sky." Photo editor Jerry Jackson comments, "Alaska is an awesome place to photograph in July since great light can last all day and into the night. The cloudy sky in this shot adds depth to the scene as well as a richness to the variety of colors."
