Getty Images recently announced the winners of the This is Canada photography competition. This contest exploring Canadian identity received almost 5,000 images submitted by about 1,000 photographers. Laureen Carruthers from B.C. won the competition with this photo taken at 153 Mile Ranch in Williams Lake, B.C. She shared that the woman in the image had lost her husband in a tragic diving accident about a year earlier. When the woman saw this photograph, she felt it was as if her husband’s spirit was embracing them. To see the other images, visit the This is Canada Flickr page.
