The APME has honored the above photograph as National Member Photo of the Month for June 2011.
Thanks to Michael Madrid, Sean Dougherty, David Cooper and Andy Scott at USA Today for judging this month. What they had to say about the winning image:
"We chose the wildfire photo by Casey Christie of the Bakersfield Californian as the best photograph in the set we judged. This news photograph with strong composition, depth, and nice light trumps all the other images submitted.”
NOTE: The judges also noted that slide # 46 by David Swanson of the Philadelphia Inquirer was a close second.
Below is the link to all images entered for June and the winner is slide #6:
