2017 Kingdom Fall/Winter 2017 Contest Winner

Rick Desrochers is a photographer from Derby Line. He grew up loving the charm and unique character of the Northeast Kingdom and all the region has to offer. He started taking photos about 20 years ago, while living on the coast of Maine, to capture the beauty he saw and share it with family and friends. From that first click of the camera, he was hooked and has been inspired ever since to photograph all the amazing places he has lived and traveled to. The cover of Willoughby Lake's South End in Westmore, was taken in October of 2016 on a perfect fall day.
