Submit a Photo
Each week, we go through dozens (and sometimes
hundreds) of reader-submitted photos and pick the very best to share
with you on Thursday mornings. The top photos are featured on
AVweb's home page, and one photo
that stands above the others is awarded an AVweb baseball cap as our
"Picture of the Week."
Want to see your photos featured?
Submit them here!
A quick note for submitters: If you've got several
photos that you feel are "POTW" material, your best bet is to submit
them one-a-week! That gives your photos a greater chance of seeing
print on AVweb, and it makes the selection process a little easier on
us, too. ;)
*** THIS WEEK'S WINNERS ***
takes home top honors this week for a snowy photo that comes not from
his home state of Idaho but from an area near Bermel, Afghanistan.
The chopper's crew are members of the Idaho Army National Guard serving
in the area.
One of the unabashed perks of working on "Picture of the Week" is
getting to see this kind of photo those that remind us how much
natural beauty and wonder are to be found in all sorts of places.
Factor in the comments and insights of the AVweb readers who submit
photos to our weekly contest, and it's like having a guided tour of the
world show up in our inbox every week.
Thanks, Peter and everyone else who submits. Keep
sending us photos and comments
from your part of the globe, and we'll keep running 'em here!
Natural landscapes dominated our inbox for the second week in a row.
Will Jannaman of Hendersonville,
Tennessee came within a hair's breadth of taking the top spot this week.

I Thought That You Stowed the Towbar
Lee Hogan of Addison, Illinois
brightened up our day with this photo from DuPage County Airport in West
Chicago. "The Skyhawk was on final when an instructor called out
his problem on the tower frequency," writes Lee. (If you can't see
the problem in the small image be sure to view the
version.) "The student flew the pattern for about 45 minutes
until all of the rescue vehicles were in place. He landed with no
damage, other than to his ego."
