Our friend Chris Starnes has won the 2012 Creative Photography Contest Grand Prize!
This contest is hosted by the Center for Railroad Photography and Art. Starnes has been photographing trains since he was 14 years old. Among his many accolades, Starnes was the first photographer to have a digital image published on the cover of Railfan & Railroad magazine (May 2004). More of Chris' work can be seen on this hompage, www.starnesphoto.com or on www.railpictures.net which he co-founded. Starnes has been a steam engineer on the Three Rivers Rambler for many years and often helps on the KXHR with freight service. Congratulations Chris!
