Readers' weather photos invited

The "Photo Galleries" corner of The Sun's new weather page,, invites readers to submit their weather-related photographs for posting on the Web site. Snowstorms, funnel clouds, flooding, lightning, sunsets or other dramatic cloud formations, oddities - anything weather-related will be considered for posting.

We'll even consider other sky phenomena, such as Nov. 7th's rare Northern Lights display, eclipses or meteors. We've opened the feature with several pictures of the aurora, taken by Maryland readers in Mt. Airy and Timonium, including three by WMAR-TV Channel 2 weatherman Norm Lewis.

We request that images submitted for posting be appropriate for publication, timely and Maryland-based. All photos will be reviewed for suitability before being accepted and published. Please include the photographer's name, the date, time and place where the picture was taken, and, if possible, details on the equipment and camera settings you used.

To submit images, you'll need to register first. Follow the directions, fill out the forms. When you're done, you will be able to upload your digital images.

Many thanks for your interest.
