So many beautiful, creative shots were taken by members of the Page community for the Page Balloon Photo Contest, that it was very tough task for judges to submit their top 5 winners.  We want to thank all participants in this contest for their submissions and we hope to see you back for next year’s hot air balloon photo contest.  It was a real treat and privilege to see unique perspectives and photo ops of our Page community and landscape.

Ross Kantra is Winner of Page Balloon Photo Contest

The winner is Ross Kantra with his photo “Weathered Balloon.” Ross will receive a $50 Certificate to Fiesta Mexicana Restaurant from Lake Powell Communications. The runner up is Michael Farrow, with his bright and colorful photograph taken from the NE corner of the Lake Powell National Golf Course.  Judges were wowed by Ricky Badonie’s “Stairs of Color” and amazed by Liam Doyle’s capture of a  balloon in Lower Antelope Canyon.  Kevin Campbell’s “Blue Flame” offers a striking perspective and burst of color looking upwards inside a balloon at the moment a burst of flame shoots in.
