RCRC wishes to thank the scores of photographers who submitted their incredible photographs in RCRC’s 4th Annual Rural County Photo Contest in July. During the month of July, amateur photographers were invited to submit photographs from RCRC member counties, showcasing the beautiful landscape, activities and people in the rural communities. In the submitted works, twenty-four member counties were represented. The submissions were ultimately narrowed down to three finalists, and on Wednesday, the RCRC Board of Directors voted to select this year’s winning photograph. And the winner is… Jason Brand of El Dorado County. Jason’s photograph, Mack Lake Late October (Inyo County), captured the exquisite beauty that exists in so many of California’s rural counties. Congratulations, Jason!
