2nd Place: Aoraki, Alia Dahlan

Honorable Mention: Skógafoss, Anna Miller

 

Location: New Zealand, Spring Semester in Australia

"Mount Cook, or Aoraki in the Maori language is located in the Southern Island of New Zealand. The area is popular with climbers and in fact, Sir Edmund Hillary trained on this mountain before climbing Mount Everest. Avalanches and other forms of erosion occur regularly at Mount Cook because it is located on a fault line." - Alia Dahlan

Location: Iceland, WCOB Spring Faculty-led Program

"I took this photo at Skógafoss waterfall in Iceland. I knew the rainbow was there just for us to see because it appeared as soon as we got there and just as we were leaving it went away. It was one of the most beautiful things I've ever been lucky enough to see. I took that photo on Saint Patrick's day! I wasn't wearing my green, but I did make it to the end of a rainbow. - Anna Miller
