I've already picked my 24 favorites.

Can we issue a "24 month" calendar?

Submitted! My daughter is only 16 but she proudly hangs this calendar in her room each year so vote for Viper_Dad! Please don't deny my daughter. What's that? You like other people's pics better? Why are you so evil? Why do you hate children? Why are you making my daughter cry?

Absolutely a great set of pictures this year. Since we get to submit 2 pictures, I have scoured my photo library and just can’t compete with the entries already submitted. With one last ditch effort, I went way back come up with a guaranteed fan favorite. Sorry everyone, looks like you are all fighting for 3rd place behind Tyler’s and this one. This one is so good, it might need to go on 2 months!

This past winter I stumbled across a scene that really stuck with me. I looked forward to going back nearly all year to get my "calendar shot" in the fall when the leaves were just right. When I went back construction had ruined the shot :( Maybe next year. Two distant second choices submitted, Thanks for putting on this show.

Just sent my 2nd candidate - nothing special, but someone has to come in last - you're all welcome.

And Thank you, Tim, for the effort that goes into this each year!

Here's a project that I've been working on for the home page; I have been taking the pages from each year's calendar and building a gallery. Tim has been running the calendar contest since 2017 - there are some spectacular photos. The 2017 & 2018 gallaries have a more finished look, the 2019, 2020, and 2021 are still works in progress right now, but placeholder images are there.

Take a look here.

I didn't know him, but always enjoyed his posts online. I remember when he was going through the issues with his wife. I would imagine he's so happy right now because they are together again.

In my opinion, this photo should be on the calendar. I thought it summed it up great, the two of them riding together on the white Wing.
Amen

Looks like Mckenzie Hwy, I may have never rode if not for Ray!
It would make a good November picture.

If Tim will allow me a third candidate, I have a photo of Redfish that will certainly bump yours up from the bottom for sure. :D

Tyler sent me this photo last night; the issue right now is that it is way below the require resolution; I'm waiting on a replay from Tyler now to see if there is a full res version floating around somewhere.

Wayne, if it's not good enough quality, someone contact me. I probably have the tools to make it quite acceptable.
