Misty mountain morning from Wale Road

The winning entry for April is titled "Wale Road Sunrise" by Ian Terris. The photo captures a unique and beautiful view of Colwood that is not widely seen, with a shock of red and the morning light filtering through the mist, illuminating layers of forest, ocean and mountains beyond.

The theme for May is SPORTS & RECREATION

Kids playing soccer or little league...scenes from one Colwood's spectacular golf courses...people playing volleyball at West Shore Parks & Recreation or the Royal Beach Park...families cycling or hiking on the Galloping Goose trail or a local park. Help show off all the amazing recreation that Colwood has to offer!
