It was a heck of a ride

My newspaper career come to a sudden end last month, but it has been one hell of a ride and I’ve worked with many great people over the years. I’m working to find my next great adventure, but as parting shot from newspapers here is my first photo to win an award in professional competition, taken in 1988 when I was an intern in Rawlins, Wyoming, and my most recent award winning photo from here in Sioux City:
