A Look Around the Basin In the fall of 2017, the commission launched its first seasonal photo contest. The Fall Photo Contest garnered submissions from more than twenty professional and amateur photographers, who each captured some of the beauty of the Basin’s resources. A judging panel of DRBC employees selected Rapids on the Mongaup River in the Fall by Andy Smith— the cover photo of this report— as the Fall winner. A selection of the fall entries are featured here. Speck of Blue by Christopher Todd Kratzer. Taken at Horseshoe Bend Park in Kingwood, N.J. River scene in Fall by Anna J. Blackman.
