The APME has honored the attached photograph as National MBR Photo of the Month for August 2011.
Thanks to Marshall Gorby at the Springfield News-Sun for judging this month.
What Gorby had to say about the winning image:
image, to look at, is an interesting photo. When I saw it, I thought,
what's so great about this guy jumping out of an airplane? Then I read
the caption. Immediately I wondered what was going through the mind of
the man who was falling to his death and what was the photographer was
thinking as he took the photo(s)? In my opinion all photos should make
you think. This one does just that.”
