We received about 80 submissions to our Winter in New England photo contest.
We could only choose one, however, as the winner of a $25 gift card.
All photos uploaded before 5 p.m. yesterday were under consideration to be crowned the winner in Patch's Picture of the Week Contest.
Never an easy decision, it took us quite some time to pick a winner of this one! After deliberating, we had to go with Peter McLaughlin's gorgeous close-up photo of a bundled-up child in the snow.
Thank you to all those who participated! Please continue to share your photos with us, either through our blogging platform or by uploading to your local Patch site's Pics and Clips gallery.
Peter, we'll be emailing you so we can make arrangements to get you your $25 gift card.
Return to Patch tomorrow, when you can start uploading pictures for our next photo contest: local youth winter sports.
