    Just got home from work and checked my emails ( I don't have a smart phone)! What a thrill and thank you mods for selecting my image. I would be remiss if I did not share credit with Matthew Studebaker for this image.
    It was taken during his Nome workshop last year and he put me in the right place at the right time to get this shot.
    A big thank you to all the moderators and BPN members who have helped me with their helpful critiques and encouragement over the past 3 years.
    Respectfully and gratefully yours,
    Gail

    Splendid image Gail, sorry I am a bit late with my congratulations; I have been traveling and don't look at the home page very often. I find all of your work inspirational and value highly your opinion and advice. The IOTY award is a fitting tribute to a photographer at the top of their game. I salute your achievements and look forward to enjoying many more fine images from your camera. Bravo! Ian.
