The National Park Service is conducting a “Fire and Aviation Photo and Video Contest”. The deadline for submissions has passed, but you can vote for the ones you like the best at their web site, where some excellent photographs are on display, including the one above taken by Tom Ferrell during the Myrtle Fire just outside Wind Cave National Park last year. (Some photos we took of the Myrtle Fire can be found HERE, HERE, and HERE.)

Anyone can vote for one photo in each category once per day through June 20. I hope the voting occurs without a hitch. What seems strange is that some photos are displayed multiple times. Another issue that complicates voting is that some of the photos, when you see them in the multiple-photo view without clicking on each one to see them enlarged, are cropped, which of course may provide a very different composition

While the contest format may have some issues, I enjoyed perusing some very good photos.

Typos, let us know HERE, and specify which article. Please read the commenting rules before you post a comment.
