The 2012 Overall winner, Diane McAndrew of Houston, took this photo on a day when the beach was pretty deserted. “I have learned over the last years to always have a camera with me on my beach runs because you never know what cool things you'll come across. This day, someone had left behind this really awesome castle. I took a picture of it with Destin's beautiful emerald water and amazing clouds in the background,” McAndrew wrote.

The Destin Area Chamber of Commerce will host its annual photo contest beginning Aug. 5 through 11 a.m. Aug. 30.

The eighth annual Destin Area Summer Photo Contest began in 2006 to promote the city of Destin through locals’ and tourists’ experiences. Previous contest entries featured children playing in the sand, families enjoying attractions around Destin, beautiful sunsets, and fishermen unloading the day’s catch along the Destin harbor.

Winners in each category and one overall winner will be selected by the Destin Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and staff.
