Reader photos: Snow much fun!

Bad pun, I know, but it really does describe the reader-submitted photos we have here on at the Daily Item.

They show how people are trying to enjoy this tremendous amount of snow we’ve seen this year. I mean, make the best of a bad situation, right?

And…..we’re getting more snow early next week, so expect more snow pictures!

Reader Photos: fun with animals

It appears Daily Item readers are having some fall fun getting up close and personal  with animals, as evidenced by the cool photos they’ve submitted recently.

There’s some cool shots of all kinds of critters, from birds and insects to deer – my personal fall terror.

Enjoy some of the sights and sounds of the Valley’s animals!

Reader photos: Orange effect

There have been some really pretty reader-submitted photos lately, many of which seem to have an orange motif.

Though, to be fair, that’s not really a surprise, since it is the color of the season!

So enjoy these photos and look out tomorrow for my own special Halloween photos!

Reader Photos: Foggy Valley

I’ve opined on this blog my fascination with the fog that continues to creep up here, especially at this time of year.

And apparently I’m not the only one that feels that way.

Carol Lamparter of Selinsgrove sent in a couple of good photos of some spiderwebs in the fog, and they’re pretty cool:

Now, I hate spiders, but I do like these photos. The fog and the spider combination seems to make for a nice, creepy Halloween atmosphere.

I’m getting excited!

Coming back to some great reader photos!

I’m in my first day back at the office and I was greeted by some pretty good reader photos on our website.

It’s a nice refresher for a Monday morning, which also happens to be the Monday after a vacation- womp, womp.

Here’s some of the standouts:

Reader Photos of the week: Natural beauty

This week it’s been cool and less humid in the Valley, and it appears our readers have been out and about taking in the late-summer scenery.

The proof is in the reader gallery online which showcases numerous floral and plant scenes from around the area.

Here’s a peek:

Reader Photos: Proud ladies

This week’s theme for reader-submitted photos seems to be ladies that are proud of their accomplishments – and rightfully so.

We’ve got graduations, trail conquering and more.

Take a peek:
