Photo Year-In-Review

9-27-12-35

[September 27, 2012, Alexandria Cardinals volleyball, Jefferson High School]

OK, not really the year – I’m using school year.  And it’s just an idea that sprouted (yeah, I know, get out the Round-Up!) when I got the following e-mail from Senator Amy Klobuchar.  Don’t get too worked up over its familarity – it’s just a computer-generated personalized message she sends to all her constituents.  But I thought, why not?  Post some of my favorites since September and see what the readers think.  And, of course, I thought the staff photographer had some terrific ones:

Tom,

The snow has melted and while spring has taken a little while to get here, it’s here!

Last year, I asked people from across the state to submit photos that captured the best of summer, fall and winter in Minnesota. We received so many beautiful photos that I’ve been displaying as my Facebook cover photo, and now we are asking you to show off your photography skills again!

So as the weather warms and the flowers begin to bloom, grab your camera and take a minute to send me a photo that best depicts your Minnesota spring. We will be picking the best photo to be used as our Facebook cover photo, as well as some of the top runners up.

Submit your photo here by Monday, May 20, and be sure to check my Facebook page to see if your photo is the winner! (I’ll also send out the winner on Twitter.)

Please forward this to any of your friends who are photographers, and thank you for your support.

I look forward to seeing more incredible photos!

Amy
