Photo of the Month Archive

To date, the photo of the month has been one of the most favored spots on our site. Thanks to the response, we will be adding more photos in the coming months, including a number of photo extras. In the mean time, here is a collection of all of our past favorites.

NEW! If you prefer thumbnails, we have a separate archive page for each year that includes thumbs for quicker reference. Click here to select a year: 2003, 2002, 2001, 2000, or 1999. Please let me know what you think of this feature — it takes quite a bit longer to build, so I'd appreciate any input as to whether or not you feel that it is useful. As always, thanks.
