Washington Trust Photo Contest Celebrates Ocean State’s Beauty

Photo contest winner Victoria Dority of Peace Dale, RI captured this photo off the rocks of Galilee.

WESTERLY, R.I.--()--Washington Trust today announced Victoria Dority of Peace Dale, Rhode Island as the photo contest winner of I Luv RI’s “Favorite Rhode Island Sunrise/Sunset Location" theme. Her photo, “FV Shelby Ann,” taken off the rocks of Galilee, Rhode Island, shows a fishing boat illuminated by a deep orange sunset. The photo appears in the June issue of RI Monthly magazine.

“One of my favorite places to catch sunsets is Galilee,” said Dority. “There is something so relaxing about the boats gliding in and out of the channel, and the scenery is different every day.”

“The Port of Galilee is one of the largest fishing ports on the east coast,” said Joseph J. MarcAurele, Washington Trust Chairman, President and CEO. “It’s just one of the beautiful and historic places Rhode Islanders can relax and watch the sun rise and set.”

The “I Luv RI” photo contest is sponsored by Washington Trust in conjunction with Rhode Island Monthly. Photographers may enter by sending their favorite Rhode Island photo to: I Luv RI photo contest page, or by visiting www.iluvri.com.
