Local Firefighter Snaps Winning Photo

Thanks to some fast photography work, Glen Maki of Wofford Heights earned top prize out of 14,000 entries in the National Park Foundation’s 2011 Share the Experience photo contest. His winning photo will grace the 2013 Federal Recreational Lands Pass.

Maki, a captain with the Kern County Fire Department, took his winning digital photo of a kayaker maneuvering the waters at the Seven Teacups in the Sequoia National Forest using a 210 mm lens. “I was just taking a lot of pictures,” Maki said. “So when I decided to enter the contest, I had to enter the one I thought was the best. And it turned out pretty well.”

His prize package includes a four day/three night trip for four to a National Recreation Area of his choosing, a Magellan GPS, a REI gift card and a Federal Recreational Lands Pass.

The annual contest encourages amateur photographers to explore the nation’s federal lands and share their experiences by capturing and submitting their favorite shots. Photos must be taken on federal lands or historic sites managed by participating agencies, including the U.S. Forest Service. Contest guidelines and information are available at
