Six locals honored in annual Belvedere Community Foundation photo contest

Snapshots of a full moon over Angel Island, fog covering the Belvedere Lagoon and a crow perched in a Tiburon tree are among the winning entries in the 22nd annual Belvedere Community Foundation photo contest.

The six winning photos were chosen from 125 entries, with first-place prizes awarded in six categories: architecture, black and white, landscapes, wildlife, sunrise/sunset and people and events. No entries were received for the seventh category, for photographers ages 5-18.

The winning residents were honored Nov. 16 at the community foundation’s annual meeting.

  • Tiburon resident Jennifer Isaac took the top spot in the architecture category for “The Sails.”

  • Matthew James Gormley, also of Tiburon, won first place in the black-and-white category for “Full Moon Over Angel Island.”

  • Belvedere native Paige Peterson earned top honors in the landscape category with “Belvedere Light,” which captures a foggy, otherworldly lagoon scene.

  • Longtime Tiburon resident Joan Moir, captured her winning entry in the wildlife category, “Pelican Mosaic,” from the deck of her apartment at The Cove at Tiburon.

  • Tiburon resident Dawn Carlson's “Crow at Sunrise” earned first place in the sunrise/sunset category.

  • Fellow Tiburon resident Kristal Hale snagged the top prize in the people and events category with “Solstice.”
