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!

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!

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!

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!

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:

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:

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:

I say this every time i post Reader Photos, but I really am so impressed with the photos we receive each week from readers and post in our photo galleries.
This week, the theme seems to be animals and children beating the heat – which luckily has passed us by this week.
This batch also includes my favorite reader photo ever. Check below to see it:
Lewisburg Area high school sweethearts Sarah and Kyle are married on May 18, 2013. In honor of being high school sweethearts the couple rented a school bus and traveled to their high school to get pictures at the school where they met!

This week, Daily Item readers have submitted some amazing scenes for the Daily Item Reader Photos slideshow.
I used to think I had a good eye for photography – now I’m questioning that as we receive some of these amazing shots.
Here’s some of the beautiful landscapes we received this week!

Now that the Prom Perfect contest is over, Daily Item readers have resumed sending in their artistic photos in, depicting life in the Valley in a unique and up-front way.
It’s also almost summertime – which means I’m in the mood to go outside, plant flowers and enjoy the sunshine – though as yesterday’s post reveals, this week hasn’t been the best for that.
Anyway, here’s my favorite recent reader photos, depicting the best of the beginning of sweet summertime:
