Honorable mention, Sense of Place: Erin Engstran, Canberra, Australia. "Canberra Sunset: This photo was taken outside our hotel in Canberra, Australia. As we were standing in the field and watching the sunset, kangaroos started emerging from the trees and filled the whole area. This photo captures my favorite moment from this study abroad trip because it was a truly unique experience that could not have happened anywhere else."
