Celebrate our planet with photos
Badlands National Park.

SUMMIT COUNTY — The EPA is going global with social media for Earth Day, inviting people around the planet to share their photos on the agency’s State of the Environment group on Flickr.
The idea is to get a global snapshot of Earth Day, with a variety of images taken on 4.22.12 to be compiled bin a map of the moment. (more…)

A look back …
The Meadow Creek wetlands are already brimming with runoff even though the snowmelt season has barely started. Click on the photo to see more of the spring snow photoblog.
SUMMIT COUNTY — It’s time for the weekly retrospective, with each picture linking back to one of last week’s photoblogs, covering everything from spring snow to an orchid extravaganza at the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota, Florida. Be sure to check out our Flickr feed and the Summit Voice Tumblr for more photography. Summit Voice photography is for sale at our RedBubble gallery and our Imagekind gallery. (more…)

New snow and more on the way …
One of Frisco's historic cabins looks a little like a gingerbread house in this photoshopped image from the recent snowstorm.
SUMMIT COUNTY — It was fun to get out for an early morning stroll in Frisco Tuesday. With more than a foot of new snow on the ground, the town looked good and the skiers were happy. If you’re a Flickr member, please upload your own snow shots to the new Summit Voice Flickr group. We’d love to see you there. (more…)

SUMMIT COUNTY — With all the synergy between various social media and web-based communications platforms, I figured there had to be a way to join Flickr, the popular photo-sharing site, with WordPress. I haven’t done much with Flickr recently, but I have been throwing a few photos on there as a placeholder for Summit Voice. today, during a Summit Stage bus ride from Breckenridge to Frisco, I took a few minutes to figure out how to embed a Flickr slideshow directly into the WordPress flow. It was embarrassingly easy — just grab the url and paste it in. Voila!
Since it’s easy to organize, tag and group photos on Flickr, this is a great way for any WordPress blogger to highlight images. I’m sure other photo-sharing sites offer a similar connectivity; I’m just not familiar with them. If anyone has thoughts on other photo apps that work well with WordPress, feel free to leave a comment and I’ll check them out! Meanwhile, enjoy this Flickr slideshow, featuring some of the best Summit Voice photography from the past few months. If you view the slideshow, be sure to use the “expand” button (in the scroll bar at the bottom) for full-screen views of the images.
