McAfee Knob at Sunset

   

An illuminated green tent under the night's sky. Niall Goard’s photo of McAfee Knob earned first place in the 2015-2016 VOWA/Hunt’s Best Collegiate Outdoor Photo Contest. NOTE: Overnight camping is prohibited at McAfee Knob and is subject to a $100 fine. Niall Goard set up the tent simply for the purpose of taking this photo; he did not camp there overnight.

by Niall Goard of Chesapeake, Virginia,

a freshman majoring in forestry in the College of Natural Resources and Environment

This stunning image, taken using a Canon EOS Rebel T3i digital SLR camera, captured the knob, the stars above, and the distant lights of Roanoke, highlighted with a green tent lit from within by flashlight. It earned Niall Goard first place in the 2015-2016 VOWA/Hunt’s Best Collegiate Outdoor Photo Contest.
