MENU Photo Contest, December 17, 2022

Select your favorite photo

These photos and their captions were submitted by readers. Every Saturday we post a photo from five different readers. The link where to view photos and vote is in every Saturday and Sunday newsletter. Sign up here to receive a notification of each newsletter issue if you haven’t done so already.

How it works

  • Every Saturday we’ll select five photos from the submissions
  • You and your friends can vote once a day for seven days. Make sure you spread the word! The more your friends, family and campground neighbors vote for your photo, the better chance you have of winning. 

Good luck!

Today’s Photos

Vote below for your favorite
Voting deadline: Midnight (Pacific time), December 23, 2022.

*Please note: This contest will end next week. More than 2,000 photos have been submitted and while we love (!!) seeing them every week, it, unfortunately, takes us way (waaaaaay) too long to sort through them all. We’re spending hours on this contest, which only generates a little bit of interest week after week. Thank you to all who submitted—it’s been a pleasure looking through your lens.

Photo 35-1

From reader Mike Rooney: “Standing on a trail off the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier NP, 9/7/2021 at 6:00 p.m., this big guy walks out of the trees. He was amazing and froze me in my tracks.”

Photo 35-2

From reader Jeff Signorini: “I took this photo shortly after an autumn sunrise from Oxbow Bend in Grand Teton National Park. It shows Mount Moran reflecting in the Snake River.”

Photo 35-3

From reader Ron Santini: “We waited out the storm at Custer State Park, SD, and this is what appeared! A full double rainbow arching over the golden grasslands. Sometimes you plan, sometimes it is luck. This time it was luck!”

Photo 35-4

From reader Mark Stephenson: “On the way back home but stopped for a moment for a picture of Mt. Rainier and Mirror Lake.”

Photos 35-5

From reader Deborah Butler: “In 2018, after coming home from Iowa to see about trading in our 2007 Itasca Meridian, we decided that we would take it to Alaska, so as not to shake up a new model. 😉 At every turn, we saw more beauty than we could imagine. We had been on a couple of cruises up there but saw nothing compared to the beauty of the interior. We will return… and in the same RV.”

I agree, tough to pick just one. All of them were excellent and the views remind us of why we have an RV

Wow, tough competition this month – reminds me of judging photos in our professional photographers association where most all of the entries are worthy of award. Well done, RVers!

I echo the sentiment of keeping this, leave off the contest part. It is so nice to see what others are seeing!

As has been said before, this is one of the favorite things on your Saturday newsletter. If it is too much trouble just pick five and let us choose. Right now you are making it hard to pick because they are all so great.

I must say I couldn’t vote on this photo selection. All were equally breathtaking. Congratulations to all of you for the ability to capture such beauty!

I hate to see this feature end. It’s my favorite part of the weekly newsletter. All the pictures are worthy entries.

I’d hate to see this contest go away. So many great photos. What if you just picked 5 at random from the submissions to make the selection easier. Don’t spend time trying to only give us the best

I agree! Make the process simple and let us see the pictures! Even if it’s not run as a contest, just posting five or six to view with the short description would be fun.

I agree, just randomly pick five. I love this part of the newsletter. This week it was so hard to pick just one, they all deserved first place.

I echo this suggestion. There may be some pictures that for various legal or decency reasons can’t be shown, but just reject that one and randomly select another. I love this feature and will miss it if it goes away, This week I was immediately enthralled with the first picture, then saw the others and choosing became almost impossible. Think about The Lost Kitchen on TV. They receive 50,000 postcards at the beginning of the Maine summer season from people who want to eat there. They don’t study them; they simply randomly choose 50 each week.

I enjoyed seeing these photos each week! Sorry to hear it took a lot of time each week to get them into the newsletter.

I didn’t see the double rainbow just one going through the cloud layer.

I am so sorry to hear we will not get to see more pictures of our country. So many of us will never be able to see these sites.
