The Goat’s photo contest attracted some excellent submissions and we are happy to showcase a number of them in the paper this week.

The grand prize winner is Courtney Rupertus for her photo of her son Saul.

Saul picked a wildflower bouquet while exploring the rocky terrain alongside Kinbasket Lake. This is the grand prize winner of the Goat’s photo contest as judged by the Goat’s staff. See more submissions P9-11 / PHOTO COURTNEY RUPERTUS
