New West's Snowblog has just announced a winter photography contest. Check out the details here. Or head on over to the Snowtography contest group on FLICKR.

Also, I will be handing over the photo wrangling reigns this week to Anne Medley, a talented photographer and graduate student in photojournalism at the University of Montana. If you'd like to see a fine piece of multimedia photojournalism from Anne, you should check out her story on Missoula's Urban Chicken debate.

It was two years ago last week that I started choosing New West's featured photos of the day from this FLICKR group. It has been a huge pleasure to be immersed in your talent and to get to know many of you. I'd like to thank you all for your generosity in sharing your work with us. The New West featured photo of the day has been one of New West's most popular features, and has helped visually define New West's editorial approach. Here's to all of you and our shared love for photography and the West.

Wow am I slow. ;-)

In any case, thanks to Chris for your service! We will miss you and it's good to know you will be still lurking about. And it will be fun to see what Anne has in store, congrats to her as well.
and I guess that I am even slower.....

I don't quite get your question, John. Could you explain?
