We've seen powerful images of the Waldo Canyon Fire still blazing on the west side of Colorado Springs. And we've seen images of hope — those indications that life goes on, even in the wake of disaster.
Please help us illustrate those stories.
Whether you submit photos on our Facebook page or via Twitter, we want your fire imagery. Or, if you need a break from the fire, send pictures about life instead. (Take, for example, the adjacent image of newly planted cosmos just beginning to bloom in Manitou Springs.) These photos should be pictures you took, not pictures you've found online.
All submissions will be considered for inclusion in an oft-updated slideshow of images on this website. Additionally, we may be interested in including your image in the print edition of the Independent. In either case, your name will accompany your photo.
