Jennifer Callioux’s photo of two young boys at Goldstream Provincial Park won a photo contest put on by park staff.

A Goldstream moment

Image of boys at picnic table, taken by Jennifer Callioux, chosen as this year’s winner of the Goldstream Provincial Park photo contest.

Two young boys sit on a picnic table at Goldstream Provincial Park, laughing as they soak up the sunshine.

The image, taken by Jennifer Callioux, was chosen as this year’s winner of the Goldstream Provincial Park photo contest.

“We just felt it depicted Goldstream in itself,” said Tracey Bleackley, manager of the Goldstream Nature House.

“It’s a very classic picture of two kids enjoying themselves … getting out and enjoying nature.”

The judges were looking for a photo that captured Goldstream as a family-friendly place, she said. The winning photo portrayed Goldstream as youth-oriented.

Judges also based their opinions on composition and colour.

“The quality of the picture was just fantastic,” Bleackley said. “It’s just a beautiful picture.”

More than 100 photos were submitted for the contest, which ran from January to mid-July.

Callioux is a local photographer and owner of West Coast Wonders Photography studio in Langford.
