We are pleased to announce the winner of the 2012 photo contest Veryl Witmer!!!
Veryl Witmer lives and works in New York City. As an Upper Westside resident of over 20 years he enjoys being close to Central Park and all that it offers. Growing up on a Pennsylvania family farm, he has an innate appreciation of nature, agriculture, and gardening. He enjoyed early success with photography in high school. Before moving to New York, employment as a darkroom technician further enhanced his photographic technique. He took up photography again in 2004 with the advent of digital imaging. He is an enthusiastic nature photographer, especially of birds and is often in Central Park capturing images, particularly during migration. Most notably, he published photos he took of the coyote in Central Park in February 2010.
His work can be seen at www.verylwitmer.com.
