True Annie. I like photos that show the entirety of the landscape and when the clouds have interesting shapes and colors especially if they blend well with the rest of the landscape, those really catch my eye. There were about 3 photos where it was nearly impossible to choose between the two, so I picked the first one that caught my eye. As I mentioned, I rarely vote for a photo tat contains people (just not a big fan of them I guess, confused.gif)....but I did this year for an Oct photo because overall I still liked it best, must have been the yellow trees.

Go placidly amid the noise and waste, and remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.

Some months were really difficult to decide ... made me wish the contest had ranked-choice voting (for at least 2/month). I've noticed that I've developed consistent compositional/design etc preferences (including some types I consistently reject); it would be interesting to get in a room with others from NWH and have a conversation about how they made their choices. Thanks, Tom, for organizing!
It would be interesting to use the poll feature but it's really hard to think of the right options. I like abstracts. Some of the photos capture patterns in nature that mesmerize me. I usually prefer without humans but there are some great examples of people fitting into three landscape and almost pulling them into the picture with them. Sometimes hikers for scale, to show just how giant nature is and how small we are. Trouble is there's an exception to every rule, and people are brilliantly creative at finding them.

A little over 6 hours left to vote in the primary. Just peeked at results and looks like for some months the top 3 moving into the finals is pretty much decided (assuming it's statistically improbable at this point to gain more than 2 votes) but there are quite a few months where late voting could influence the order, especially May which is a dead heat among the top 4 so be sure to vote before midnight! Edit: Top 3 from the primary are now revealed. Be sure to re-vote in the finals!

How exciting! Thank you for showing how the voting has gone so far. That adds to the excitement. Feel like I am in the stands cheering as the horses come down the home stretch. haha ~z

The vote totals were clearly trending towards victory for a bunch of my picks. Then suddenly out of nowhere there's a bunch of supposed "early" votes that need to be counted, and they magically trend dramatically the other way? And I can't be the only one who noticed that the voting thread was down for a little while in the wee hours of the night, even while the rest of the website remained up and totally unaffected by any such "outage"? This is ridiculous. We're the laughing stock of third world hiking enthusiast websites. For me, I will not participate in this farce next year (one of my pics is still in the running this year) unless we institute an in-person, single day calendar selection process.

Some awesome photos from everyone here. April was a tough one I would buy prints of all of those finalists for April.

Only 24 hours left to vote in the Finals (the wiki had indicated Nov 28 but that was a typo, the plan was give everyone until Tuesday after the Thanksgiving holiday). Some of the races are very close. September is within 1 vote, Cover is within 2 votes, March and October are within 3 votes, and January is within 4 votes. March and May have seen second place overtake first place from the Primary. September is on the ropes, clinging to 39-38 lead after starting the Finals with a commanding 27-15 lead from the Primary. Will first place in the Primary be able to hold off the challenger? Make sure you re-vote in the finals!

Voting has been narrowed down to the top 2 where third place has been decided. Please re-vote for Cover, January, March, May, September and/or October if you had picked third place.

I missed the first two but ended up 9/13, I must have excellent taste!

Most and least accurate voter will be revealed after all is said and done based on original vote in primary and final placement. Only 10 more hours to revote in the finals. Be sure to revote for cover and in months where third place has been called.

Where is it? The wiki has disappeared! confused.gif ~z The only calendar thread I see up is this one created by Josh in the very beginning. There was a separate Calendar thread and now it's disappeared.
