I received only a few guesses attempting to identify January’s image and of them, only two were correct. Jim Pontious of Murrysville, PA was one, but the award and the six prints has to go to Steve Franzeim of Harvard, Mass. In the interests of full disclosure, I need to confess that Steve and his wife Chris are very dear old friends. “Beach buddies” actually. Part of a group of friends who re-converge each summer, “Big Chill” style at Goose Rocks Beach in Southern Maine, my childhood and favorite escape, at least before I discovered the Thousand Islands sixteen years ago.
