Check out the winning photo for the Aroostook County Tourism summer photo contest. Follow this link to the Bangor Daily News or to the Aroostook County Tourism website. The photo is very nearly Rockwellesque.

The scenic views category winner took a shot of Portage Lake at sunset. It’s just as I remember it growing up! I’m guessing from the angle that it was shot from the south or southeast corner of the lake not too far from the public beach, but I could be wrong. It is unfortunate that the Aroostook County Tourism website does not allow for a larger version of the photos.
