Photographer: John Carroll Photo taken: Aug. 25, 2018 at the Cliffside RV Park on the Whidbey Naval Air Station Photographer’s description: “The Cliffside RV Park on the Whidbey Naval Air Station has a bounty of dense, stunning flower gardens. The dahlias of every color and variety were particularly striking on yesterday’s visit. This two-tone beauty was especially eye-catching. Taken with iPhone 8 plus, in portrait mode.” Critique: “Many photos of dahlias were submitted for this contest, but none as striking as this one of a dahlia with two different halves. The focus on the sole flower makes it stand out compared to the other colorful dahlias in the background.”
