The Spring season is always something to look forward to for Rhode Islanders. The last bits of snow finally melt away, the flowers start to bloom, the boats come out of storage, and the PawSox return to McCoy. This year, low temperatures and wet weather put a slight damper on things, but that didn’t stop our agents from capturing some terrific shots for the 2017 RPL Spring Photo Contest.
As always, I would like to thank everyone who made this contest such a success, including all the agents who entered submissions and all of our friends on Facebook who took the time to cast their votes. This year’s Spring Photo Contest was viewed by nearly 6,200 people on Facebook, receiving a total of 327 “Likes.”
The contest was highlighted by a dramatic comeback. Despite falling behind by nearly 20 votes during the early going, our eventual winner stormed back over the weekend to finish with almost 20 more votes than the next closest competitor. As the only entry to receive over 100 votes, I am proud to announce “WaterFire Sunset” taken by Cumberland Sales Associate, Kimberly Horvath as the winner of the 2017 RPL Spring Photo Contest. Kimberly’s photo captured a beautiful sunset reflecting on the water of the Providence River, while showcasing a group of playful ducks in the foreground, as well as the recognizable Providence skyline beyond the river. Also the winner of this year’s RPL Winter Photo Contest, this marks Kimberly’s second consecutive contest win. Congratulations to Kimberly Horvath, who will receive a free property video and website for her winning photo.
