Happy Trails winner

Christina Tompkins is the winner of this week's Sunshots theme "Happy Trails" with her photo of her son Nicholas taken last fall on a family camping trip to Shenandoah National Park. The photo was taken with a Canon T2i. Tompkins writes, "We were hiking just off the Appalachian Trail in the Big Meadows Campground. He was a trooper!  It had been sleeting the prior evening when we had set up camp and bitter cold, but he loved the adventure and still talks about how much fun he had mountain camping." Sun photo editor Jerry Jackson comments, "This sharply-dressed young hiker could be out of a clothing catalog shoot. The camera's fill flash did a nice job opening up the shadows and adding a catchlight in his eyes while remaining subtle."
