Capturing the Scenic Schuylkill on Film

One of the finalists in the "Wild & Scenic" category is from Pottstown.
This photo is called "Two Bucks Hiding in the Woods."
Regular Digital Notebook readers may remember a July post in which photographers were invited to submit their favorite photos of the Schuylkill River.

Well people did just that and now it's time to judge the entries and you are the judge.

Sponsored by the Schuylkill Action Network, the entries can be viewed by clicking here.

You can vote more than once, but only once every 24 hours.

And one finalist, in the "Tip-Top-Tap" category
is from Phoenixville.
Winners will receive a $300 gift provided by one of three sponsors.

These include the Philadelphia Water Department, Calumet Photo, and REI.  
Other prizes include $100 gift cards for second place and $50 gift cards for honorable mention. 
The categories include Wild & Scenic, Fun on the Schuylkill, and Tip Top Tap.

“Many people only see the river from cars while driving over bridges or past refineries,” said Tom Davidock, Schuylkill Action Network coordinator at the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary.  

“What they don’t see are the forests, fun seekers, and wildlife; all of it made possible by water clean enough to quench the thirst of most Philadelphians.”
