  1. Congratulations Ethan, a well deserved win! I figured it would be between you and Aaron, but all the monthly winning entries this year have been excellent.

  2. Congrats Ethan. This is a very well composed and executed image. I only wish I lived near the ocean so I could have backdrops like this.

  3. Thank you so much everyone! Hard to believe after looking at all of those awesome images!

    I hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday!

    Mele Kalikimaka!!
