A photographer from Juneau beat out more than 13,000 images to be named the grand-prize winner in the “Sea to Sky Princess Photo Contest,” according to Princess Cruises.
Carol Lahnum submitted the winning consumer photo of Brown’s Cave at Mendenhall Glacier.
Carol’s images, and nearly 1,000 others, will be featured in Sky Princess staterooms and stateroom corridors.
“I captured this image one morning when we paddled the two miles across Mendenhall Lake, then climbed up, over, then under the glacier,” said Lahnum.
“Around 8 a.m., after we had climbed down into the cave, the sun started to peak into the entrance of the cave and this image was captured. It’s a long exposure image so that I could capture the flowing waters all around me.”
Carol is an award-winning, worldwide published artist. She has won multiple awards for her photography work and graced multiple magazine and publication covers. She has a style that stands out from the crowd, creating a unique and refreshing perspective for each customer. In addition to shooting, Carol is a mother of five, wife and avid outdoor adventurer – and leads photo tours in our capital city.
With a destination collection of 380 ports and scenic attractions on seven continents to capture, the “Sea to Sky Princess” contest invited entrants to submit their favorite photos portraying their most treasured holiday vistas.
The new 3,660-guest Sky Princess debuts in October 2019.
