The winning photo was taken by Essexville, Michigan native, Courtney Kotewa, and shows kayakers on Lake Superior at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The picture shows a rock formation that is considered one of the most memorable views of the Lake Superior park.
Her photo will be featured on every “America the Beautiful – The National Parks and Federal Lands Pass” sold in the U.S. She was awarded $10,000 for her first-place finish. Courtney took the picture while vacationing at Pictured Rocks with her family.
