2012 Reader Photos of the Year

HONORABLE MENTION: NORTHWEST SCENICS

Photographer: Kim Dahmen, Seattle

Photo taken: Feb. 3, 2012, Lake Union

Photographer's description: "I awoke in the morning to a cacophony of crows as two bald eagles invaded their airspace above Lake Union's Waterway 19. As one eagle glided to rest on high branches, I glanced to the water below and snapped the wavering reflection from my houseboat. Taken with my Nikon D80 and 55-200mm zoom."

Judge's comment: "This is a refreshing take on a familiar Northwest subject. The ripples in the water and inversion of the subject give this image a dreamlike quality."
