Ocean View, an image by PACC member Sue Borg, was the First Place winner in the Landscape category of the 2023 Peninsula Photo Contest.

Sue says:  Ocean View was taken at an often-photographed location at the Sea Ranch Lodge on the Sonoma Coast, though typically the images are at sunset and in color.  My image sought to simplify the view and focus on the shadows and tones framing the ocean beyond.
