Bob Hirschfeld, who works in the Lab's Public Affairs Office, won first place in the City of Livermore's Amgen Bike Race Photo Contest 2012.
His photo entitled "Tesla" shows a stream of Amgen Tour of California cyclists racing uphill among grape vines on Tesla Road between Greenville and Vasco roads while a walker strolls by. The Livermore Commission for the Arts announced the winners Monday at an artist's reception.
In addition to serving as a public information officer for the Lab, Hirschfeld often serves as a photographer on site as well. Lori Dempsey, who works at the National Ignition Facility and is an amateur photographer, won an honorable mention in the contest. Hirschfeld will receive a cash prize and he, Dempsey and the other winners will be recognized at the Livermore City Council Meeting on June 25.
