AVweb's Picture of the Week ...
Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners
Every once in a while, a theme emerges from your photo submissions without any stretch of the imagination on our part. This week's clear theme was "skylines" — more specifically, skylines and stormfronts. Would you believe that one out of every four "POTW" entries was a skyline photo? C'mon, 'fess up — you guys got together and planned this, didn't you?
Fine, just sit there and stare — we're on to you, and we'll catch you before this is all over.
In the meantime, take a look at three of the best horizon photos — plus one extra pic, just for good measure.
Due to privacy issues, AVweb does not publish e-mail addresses of readers who submit photos.

Ryan Pemberton of Spokane, Washington starts us off with a first-prize photo
he took from a Stearman Sr. Speedmail that belonged to his father. "We were on
our way down to the Jim Wright Memorial Stearman Fly-In," writes Ryan. "We had to
fight weather all day, and this moment made it all worthwhile." Ryan identifies the lone
non-Stearman aircraft as a TravelAire 4000, and we're identifying him as this week's
"POTW" winner. Check your mailbox, Ryan — an official AVweb ball cap is on the way!
