Photo Contest Winner!

With so many fantastic photos submitted to our Facebook photo contest once again we had a tough time choosing a winner for the 1 night stay at Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort!

Just like we asked, every shot is quintessential Carlsbad or Beach. Some are a crack-up, some breathtaking and others classic Carlsbad Inn with the sights you see while on vacation or in town for business. They can be viewed at

So without taking up more time, the winner is… Rusty Sharman! Rusty is a talented local photographer and he has submitted brilliant pictures in past contests – always in our top 2 or 3 picks. With this Sunset and Sea Gull photo we couldn’t pass it up especially as Squawky, Visit Carlsbad’s own ‘spokesperson’, campaigned for the win!

Congratulations Rusty!
