Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners

Truly, the golden age of “Picture of the Week” has returned! Of almost five dozen submissions, nearly a third made it into our “personal desktop wallpaper” file. But one photo called out to us to be proclaimed the undisputed “Picture of the Week” – Bud Granley’s. We think you’ll agree when you see it.

Interesting note: This week’s top three photos were all taken in Canada!

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