The Winter Meltdown Edition


“Ghostflakes” by Oliver Halberg

Thank you to Oliver Halberg — and the CVU Photography club — for the cover photo.

Artist’s statement:

“The subject of this image is the display of snowflake projects outside of Room 152 at CVU High School. I was attracted to this subject because of the contrast between the white plastic snowflakes and the black background. The effect was achieved by using a long shutter speed and zooming out from the snowflakes as I took the photo. The photo was then adjusted slightly using Adobe Photoshop in order to enhance the final image.”

Have a good seasonal image for us? Send it on!


Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers and be capable of reading them. –Thomas Jefferson to Edward Carrington, 1787.
