The APME has honored the above photograph as National Member Photo of the Month for January 2012.
Thanks to Barry Arthur and Jeff Mitchell at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for judging this month.
What the judges had to say about the winning image:
"This was a striking photo of the setting sun adding spectacular highlights to an ominous layer of clouds. Great job by the photographer to watch for a couple of people walking by to add perspective to the sky. A truly beautiful image."
