(Hope I did this right). One of the most remarkable photos recently on Pasty Central was featured on August 2. Somehow in the U.P. the sky seems a whole lot bigger and closer. I could just imagine seeing this ominous apparition while standing on the top of Brockway. Reminds me of some awesome spring or summer storms we have experienced first-hand in the Keweenaw, so I guess it would be appropriate for any month May through August.

I vote for the colored trees and brilliant sky on Tuesday Oct. 9.

I also second RD's suggestion of that awesome cloud formation.

B. McKamey (Bmckamey) on Thursday, October 11, 2007 - 09:20 am:

Here's another one I loved--makes me hungry.


(I'll stop at two nominations)

I second both of the last two pictures.

I'm not sure if I'm allowed to vote, since I work here, but if I am, I think this one would be a great choice for the month of May!

I'd only like to add my opinion here that pictures chosen should be brighter since when printed they are even darker than we saw them. Several calendars ago, some picts that I had loved did not print well because they were too dark. Just a suggestion.

By Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Saturday, October 13, 2007 - 08:45 am:

Good observation, Maija. That's the kind of feedback we need to make it a better calendar.

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Saturday, October 13, 2007 - 09:25 am:

Charlie, I assume that the chosen pictures could be lightened in Photoshop, easily enough, but I don't know if you want to go to that trouble.

By Snowman (Snowman) on Saturday, October 13, 2007 - 06:04 pm:

Question; who picks out the pictures????

By Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Sunday, October 14, 2007 - 04:15 am:

Snowman, if you are referring to the daily pictures, for several years Mary Drew has been selecting all but the Sunday Shoebox Memory photos, which I do. But if you mean who picks the calendar pictures, every year visitors to this website pick them. And this page is for that purpose this year.

I like this one. b1017b

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Wednesday, November 7, 2007 - 09:36 am:

I like KJ's choice as it's my background on my computer. It's absolutely breathtaking to see it on there.

My 2nd choice would be RD's choice. I love that picture.
