Hudsonite among winners

“Trumpeter Love” by Jeff Bucklew

The talent of amateur photographers and the beauty of the St. Croix River watershed was apparent in this year’s St. Croix River Association photo contest. Nearly 100 photographs competed in four categories: landscape, people, wildlife and close-up for both youths and adults.

Among the winners was Hudson’s Jeff Bucklew who won firsts in adult close-up and adult wildlife. He also took second in adult close-up and third in adult wildlife. The above photo was his winner in adult wildlife titled “Trumpeter Love.” Renowned professional photographer Gary Alan Nelson was the judge for this annual contest now in its third year.
