"I have some award-winning photos of the Willow Fire," the caller proclaimed. "Of course, they won't win any awards if nobody sees them."
As smoke plumes from the Willow and Ponderosa fires towered above the Rim country, photographers were out in force, capturing the flames, the devastation, the heroes who fought the inferno. Many of you have already submitted your photos for publication, and we thank you for those spectacular shots.
While we can't guarantee any awards, the Roundup is giving would-be photo buffs a place to show their stuff.
So go ahead, take your best shot. Then, e-mail it to email@example.com, or drop it off at the Roundup office in the Swiss Village Shops.
Some of the best photos will be posted on our online version of the Roundup -- www.payson.com --n the 2004 fire season photo gallery.
