Our tenth annual Photo Contest wrapped up this week and as always, the entries were stunning. Our talented Dave's Garden members out-did themselves once again and we invite you to take a look at some of the winning entries, along with links to the runners-up.

This year marks the tenth anniversary of the Dave's Garden Photo Contest. From humble beginnings and just a few entries, it has grown to a huge event with over 3,000 stunning images submitted by our member/photographers. Any member can enter and the whole membership votes for the winners.

Every year, Dave's Garden members make note of their best photographs and eagerly await the contest each autumn. The results are nothing less than spectacular and we have recently added the Dave's Garden Calendar to show off the winning shots.

All winners receive a copy and anyone can order one via this link. Visit the Zazzle Store for the calendar and other DG merchandise such as travel mugs, tee shirts and mouse pads here.

 We invite you to enjoy the winning images below. Click on the link above each winner to go to the runner-up images for that category. They are equally as stunning as the winners. Dave's Garden members are a talented group and we are proud that they share their images with us each year.
