Start by going here: http://www.bigbendgallery.com/uploads/files/cal2017/index.htm or scrolling through the images below. Click on any of the thumbnails to view the full-size version. Pick your top 13 (you might want to write them down), then come here and vote. Voting will end Monday 11/14. Each member gets to vote once and results will not be shown until after the voting is finished. Once you vote you can't change your vote, so pick carefully. Good luck to all the BBC photographers!

Note: all images have been resized to save file space and reduce download time, so some image degradation may have occurred. Watermarks present on nominated photos will be removed whenever possible before being put in the calendar.

Just FYI, on my monitor after the first row the number of the first thumbnail appears at the end of the previous row.

Voted!  It wasn't easy limiting it to just 13.

Yes, the numbering is a little confusing. 

Also, 33 and 25 are the same, aren't they?

Different shots from about the same location. I couldn't decide which I like better, so I nominated both. Pick one, both, or none. :)

Yes, the numbering is a little confusing. 
I was hoping that the images would adjust to the width of the browser, but apparently that didn't work. I've now changed it so that there are three per line, with the number to the left. You might also notice that the file names are themselves numbers. Any suggestions for how to make it any more clear should probably be kept to yourselves at this point, as I'm not having a good day and am fighting to keep my inner snark in check.

All very good choices.  Can't wait to place my order!

Is it just me, or do the pictures get better every year?

Email or link is fine, just don't forget the title and attribution. ;)
