This category has of course long been near and dear to me, as one of my primary photo goals has always been to showcase the beauty of Iowa- in all it's seasons, features and forms. I do have a couple of ideas for specific locations that I'd like to attempt to photograph this spring if conditions line up well- so this is the one division where I am most likely to add options prior to this year's entry deadline- but for now these are my top contenders.
The Round 1 Matchups are as follows:
1) "Prairie Dreams" (Herbert Hoover National Historic Site, West Branch)
"Hitchcock Trail" (Hitchcock Nature Center, Honey Creek)
2) "Weathered Soul" (Cedar County)
"Palisades" (Palisades-Kepler State Park)
3) "Country Road- Take Me Home" (Cedar County)
"Crimson & Clover" (Madison County)
4) "Murray Hill" (Harrison County)
"Loess Hills" (Monona County)
