"The reason why I chose this photograph was because the lake is covered with sailboats. I sail on the Charles River in Boston but never have on Lake Quannapowitt. This inspires me to someday sail on our Lake. It is interesting to see the folliage in the background. Looking back then, the trees did not grow as high as today." - caption provided by Emma Kraus (age 14), contest winner.;Winner of photo contest, First Place, Teen category.
