Delaware River Basin Commission Summer Photo Contest To Begin June 21

The Delaware River Basin Commission will begin accepting entries for its Summer Photo Contest on June 21.  The deadline for entries is August 15.
The contest’s purpose is to highlight photography representing the beauty, diversity, function, and significance of the water resources of the Delaware River Basin, a 13,539-square mile watershed.
Spring Winner
Laura Orbine’s photograph, titled Tulipes `a Frenchtown, was chosen as the winner of the commission’s Spring 2019 Photo Contest.  Thirty-five photographs were submitted by 11 individuals for the contest.
“This scene really spoke to me, and I knew I needed to grab a photo because the tulip bloom is fleeting,” said Laura Orbine of Frenchtown, N.J.  “I am fortunate to live in the Delaware River corridor and thankful for the individuals and organizations that protect it as a water resource, recreational area, historical region, and treasure trove of natural beauty.”
Staff Winner
The judging team chose Water Quality Intern Daisy DePaz’s photo Spring Showers at High Falls in Ringing Rocks Park in Bucks County as the winner of the Commission's staff photo contest.  
“You can almost feel the energy of High Falls, Bucks County’s largest waterfall, in Daisy’s photo,” said Fahl.  “In other seasons, the water flow may be only a trickle, but in spring, it comes alive, plunging 15 feet before continuing its journey to the Delaware River.”
