Finalist: The mountains in Grand Teton National Park near Jackson Hole, Wyo., by Terry Porter of Carrollton, Texas. Porter was struck by this "awe-inspiring view rising above the treetops, as the golden glow of sunrise breaks through the morning fog." The judges, who would have picked this shot as the third-place winner, praised the "strong contrast between the horizontal clouds and the vertical thrust of the peaks, all set off by the gorgeous light" in one of America's most iconic national parks.
