Shutterbugs, our 2015 Lens on Lake Minnetonka photo contest has come to a close. Thanks to our readers for their gorgeous photo submissions! A panel of judges chose a winner in each category (listed below). We also included runners-up and honorable mentions as the number and quality of photos allowed.
