AVweb's Picture of the Week ...
Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners
'Tis the week before Christmas, and AVweb readers must be settling in for their long winter's nap — submissions numbers were down to a modest 50 entries this week. As longtime readers know, that's not unusual for the last couple weeks of the year. Even pilots and photographers have holidays to celebrate, as demonstrated by the large number of holiday lights, flying Santas, and prop wreaths we saw in this week's batch of photos. So, in the interest of celebrating the season, we're running the top five holiday photos this week — and rolling over our non-holiday submissions (all 29 of them) to next week's contest. This will give us more photos to choose from next week. In the meantime, kick back with a cup of eggnog and see what your festive fellow readers have been up to!
Due to privacy issues, AVweb does not publish e-mail addresses of readers who submit photos.

"Merry Christmas from KAPC Wine Country"
Noel Dennis of Napa, California kicks off our holiday
festivities in the time-honored tradition — with twinkly lights!
Not only was Noel kind enough to include camera specs
(always popular with our technically minded readers), he
even changed his name to reflect the spirit of the season!*
Those specs: Canon EOS 20D with 24-70L 2.8 lens
exposed at 1/25 second at F/2.8, hand-held.
* Not really.
