IFWTWA's Photo Contest

Congratulations, Therese Iknoian!

IFWTWA held its first ever Photo Contest this past fall and we got lots of stunning entries from our members. None moreso than that of Theresa Iknoian, whose “Historic Pemaquid Point Lighthouse Maine” was a huge hit with the judges. Come see!

A pelican rests his wings after catching a few fish off Florida’s coast. The photo was taken while I was on a boat ride from Fort Myers to Cabbage Key. (Just about an hour’s drive from our convention site of St. Petersburg.) There are so many wading and sea birds in that area. He was just posing on a maker out in the water.
