Hot dog!  It’s time for another installment of AVweb’s "Picture of the Week"!

We hope you’ll forgive our enthusiasm, but this week’s batch of submissions are something to get excited about.  (And we promise, there’s not a dead animal to be seen this week.)  After much deliberation, we’re giving this week’s winning baseball cap to Lorraine Morris.  Watch your inbox, Lorraine – the hat is on its way.

Due to privacy issues, AVweb does not publish e-mail addresses of readers who submit photos.

“T6 by Mt. Rushmore"
Lorraine Morris of Poplar Grove, Illinois
submitted this patriotic image of Mt. Rushmore.
For those old enough to remember when television
stations didn’t broadcast 24/7, we were tempted
to save this one for our "sign-off" … .

AVweb continues to receive a large number of excellent images for our POTW contest. Here are some of the runners-up. Click on the links below to view larger versions.

"Off-Centerline But Sweet"
C.J. Anthony of Prescott, Arizona
took this high-energy shot during
a landing at Scottsdale Airport.
His caption pretty much says it all.

"Evening Balloon Flight in Arizona"
Who says we don’t give enough time to balloonists?
Gary Kegel of Burns, Oregon takes us back to
Arizona for a slightly more subdued photo … .

Bonus Pictures

"POTW" submissions are pretty strong,
considering that the long winter months
have set in firmly.  We know it’s too cold
to go outside, so how about emptying out
those pictures from last summer and
sending us some warm-weather snapshots, eh?

Used with permission of Robert Shearer

"P3 Prop and Iceberg"
Robert Shearer of Auckland, New Zealand
sends us this photo "taken by one of our crew
on a patrol in the southern oceans just north of Antarctica."
Hmmm – just what line of work are you in, Robert?

Used with permission of George Mock

Instead, we decided to let George Mock
of Windsor, Ontario (Canada) take us out this
week, with dual shots of Lighthouse Cove (near Windsor),
where the Thames River enters Lake St. Clair.
"Very busy marinas in the summer time," writes George,
but "all that changes in the winter."
