Architecture category

Winner: Alasdair Martin “Houseboats”

Alasdair’s photo was taken in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada. He says: “I took this photo at the houseboats on Yellowknife Bay on an early Sunday morning paddle that summer. It was a smoky season with all the NWT wildfires, but that morning the smoke was gone and there was no wind so I seized the opportunity. The summer season is very short this far north. You can drive on the same lake only a few months later.”

Runner up: Russell Walsh “Shot Tower”
