Photo Contest: Show Us Views From Moderate Mountaintops

The Adirondack Explorer‘s next “Views of the Park” photo contest is focusing on everyone’s favorite type of photo: from the summit of a mountaintop.

And in light of the ongoing problem of overcrowding in the high peaks region, we’re asking you to post photos from the mountains you’ve hiked that are “Under 4,000” feet, or outside the forty-six high peaks.

Post your photos to Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #adkexplorerpix.

Explorer staff will choose their favorite photos to be included on the Adirondack Explorer website and highlighted in the bimonthly magazine. If yours is chosen, you’ll receive a free one-year subscription to the Explorer.

Don’t worry, you don’t need to be a professional. Just get out your phone and snap a pic. Or send one from a previous year.

Plus a People’s Choice

We will post our favorite few photos to Facebook and let readers vote for a “People’s Choice” to be recognized in the magazine.

And thank you to all who sent in photos for the last contest: “Water views.” We loved them all so much it was hard to choose. Check out the final five winners.

    “Post your photos to Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #adkexplorerpix.”

    I don’t do Facebook and instagram is a foreign language to me. I find emails to be the most convenient way to send photos. Because I am not as complicated as society is in general I suppose this leaves me out?

    Everyone should do their own thing, but why shout it from the rooftops? Isn’t it enough to enjoy the experience quietly by yourself, or with a few close trail companions, and leave it at that. Let others find their own paths without leading them by the nose.

    It might be a good idea to post the photos but not identify the location. Let people see that there is more out there than high peaks.
