2019 Calendar Voting

Start by going to https://www.flickr.com/photos/167962938@N08/albums/72157703167352874/with/45030832954/ or http://bigbendchat.atwebpages.com/ 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 Thursday 11/20. 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.

Thank you for your hard work on this, Richard.  #17 appears to be a split image of #14 and another frame.

Here are some of my best pictures from the last two trips.
Nice. However, since panos have lots of wasted space, I nominate these as a combo.

It could have been even harder! I just re-read Jeff Blaylock's trip report, "Holy Week in a Holy Place". I'd forgotten how drop-dead gorgeous his photos were. Now I feel like a schmuck for not nominating some of his pics from that trip. Sorry, Jeff. Next year.......

Hmmm?  The first part should be the images with check boxes next to each one.  The second post or thing should be by Richard with further details.  If you can't see that then we will have to wait for Richard to chime in

Ok - I decided to view this on my laptop, and now I can see the poll with the images and check boxes above your second post.
On my phone using the mobile site, I canít see the poll at all .
If I choose the web view option, though, I can see the poll, but no check boxes.
