2022 Annual Amish Country News Photo Contest

Every year, I look daily at my inbox to see what pictures may have come in as entries in the Annual Amish Country News Photo Contest. Each time I click to open a photo, I am a little excited, because I never know what I may see. Sometimes I actually gasp with delight, or give a soft-spoken “Wow” under my breath. This year was no exception. 

And the Winner is…

Grand Prize Winner “Evening Sunset Wheat”
Suzanne Mayer –
Lafayette Township, NJ
This sunset picture was taken from our campsite at Country Acres Campground from campsite 864 when we were there in June. We were lucky to have such a beautiful view across the farm field from our campsite. 
Second Place Winner — “Curious Cows”
Marlin BennetchBirmingham, AL
This well–maintained farm is symbolic of the PA Dutch countryside and the Cows were extremely curious and interested in me.
Third Place Winner — “From Children, Comes Faith & Inspired Graffiti”
Thomas HerrNarvon, PA
Taken outside of a One–Room School house. As you can see, the children were using dried leaves to spell out God’s feelings. 

Honorable Mention — “Harvest Time in Churchtown”
Ray SmeckerLancaster, PA
I stopped at this spot and looked up and saw this grand gathering of a bounty from our very peaceful valley.
