2013 – ELAPP Calendar Photo Contest.

 

2013 – Hillsborough County ELAPP Calendar Photo Contest.

During mid-summer of 2012, Hillsborough County Parks and Recreation put out invasions to local residents to participate in a Calendar Photo Contest, asking for images portraying the natural beauty of wildlife and landscapes which could be found on county parks properties managed under a ELAPP – or Environmental Lands Acquis ion and Property Protection.

The 187 submitted photos were posted on the county’s Facebook page and residents had an opportunity to vote for their favorite photos.  The top 34 vote-getters were then reviewed by a panel of judges who made the final selection for the calendar.

bobcat photo by George L. Veazey III of Temple Terrace received the most public votes overall, and it is featured, along with 25 more photos, in the calendar.

Veazey actually has eight photos in the calendar -- the cover photo and the months of February, April, May, July, September, November, December and the cover photo. For having the photo with the most votes, Veazey will receive a private canoe tour of Cockroach Bay Preserve.

A lifelong Hillsborough County resident, Veazey worked for the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office for 35 years, retiring in 2006. He said he fell in love with photography while he was a student at the University of South Florida, working on the yearbook staff.

After retiring from the sheriff's office, he pursued his photography in earnest, focusing on the county's native wildlife and natural resources.
