Your 10 Best
A new and regular feature of the DHT will be YOUR TEN BEST, and we encourage you to be a part of it. Essentially, it is a Top 10 list – in no particular order – that is relevant to you and your community. To give you an idea of what we are looking for from your our readers, we’ve asked former DHT photographer Randy Vanderveen to submit his Top 10 list, and as so many of our readers have told us over the years – they love Randy’s bird shots. So we asked Randy to share with us his 10 best places in and around the city to photograph our feathered friends and which ones he enjoys capturing with his lens. Pantone 1675 U
