Idaho Outdoors Photo Contest Grand Prize Winner
Photo by Charles Knowles
Charles Knowles won the grand prize in Idaho Statesman's Idaho Outdoors photo contest with this shot.
“I’m very proud of it,” he said. “I’ve taken a lot of pictures of Boise over the years, and it is by far the most unique picture of Boise that I have ever taken.” The window of opportunity for his photo was small. “There was nothing but fog,” he said. “I couldn’t see anything, and I was just hoping the fog would lift, and then it started to clear, and it was very quick. That scene only lasted about 15 seconds. I took about 20 photos in that time frame, and this is the one that worked. ... This was the one.”
