BBG 2012 Calendar: Your Take

Updated 2011-11-20
My photo of Patrick Dougherty's "Natural History" blanketed in January's snow opens Brooklyn Botanic Garden's 2012 calendar.
Natural History

Earlier this year, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden solicited submissions for a visitor-sourced calendar:
Among the Garden’s most passionate visitors are photographers, who capture the beauty each season brings to the Garden’s 52 acres. Their images, taken from unique vantage points, offer perspectives that are at once stunning and unexpected. The 2012 calendar celebrates BBG through their eyes, with a selection of the best visitor-contributed photos from an online competition hosted last year.
Today, the winners met for a reception and guided tour of the Garden.

After coffee and munchies, following a brief welcome and introduction from BBG's Claire Hansen, we set out on our own guided tour of the "Your Take" trail, a temporary exhibit on the grounds of the Garden, highlighting each of the photos in the calendar, and its photographer, at the location the photo was taken. Here I am posing with my sign.

Hi Chris - Was I dreaming? I thought I just saw a set of the 12 winning images here in a gallery, and when I came back to grab a link they were gone?

Not at all. I updated the post this evening. The original slideshow was BBG's Flickr set of their copies of the photos. I got all my photos up today, so the slideshow is now my photos.

I link to BBG's set at the bottom of the post.
