Nelson photographer Kathryn Gardner has won two provincial awards for images she took of a bald eagle and a landscape.

The Professional Photographers of Canada selected Gardner’s “The Eagle is Landing” for its exceptional animal image award, as well as “Sentinel Pass” in the pictorial-floral class.

Gardner also received an honourable mention in the editorial image category for “Riding the Chilcotin Highlands.”

The 76th annual awards were part of the BC Image Salon exhibition, which included 22 different categories.

“Success in the PPOC-BC competition highlights the makers’ talents and ability to create outstanding images for their clients,” said image competition chair Ross Outerbridge in a statement.
