Jason and I belong to the Photographic Section of The Academy of Science and Art of Pittsburgh.  Our club is publishing a book of photos from members, and we both had photos selected.

Geri had one photo selected. This photo is of the island of Kerrera and the Hutcheson Memorial, taken from the beach in front of the Youth Hostel in Oban, Scotland. The date was July 21, 2008.  The Hutcheson Memorial is the tall spire on the right. This is not a panorama, but a standard photo with top and bottom cropped off.
