Mist gathers along the Carson River near Genoa Lane this morning.

The sun rose this morning to misty fields, humid from Wednesday’s rain. A perfect morning for photography.

Today is the seventh annual Day in the Life of Carson Valley photo hunt sponsored by The Record-Courier.

Residents are encouraged to take photographs in Carson Valley on Thursday and send them into the newspaper for publication in the 2014 Carson Valley Almanac.

In the seven years since Day in the Life became a regular feature of the Almanac hundreds of readers’ photos have been published.

The rules are simple, all photos must be taken in Carson Valley or its surrounding mountains, and they must be taken on Thursday.

Photos may be cropped and color corrected, but not digitally altered.

For publication, the photos must be original format, not thumbnails, and 1 Mb or larger. Digital file formats accepted include jpeg and tiff. Prints may be scanned.

Submit photos by emailing them to or bringing them by The Record-Courier building at 1503 Highway 395, Suite G before Dec. 1.

Call Editor Kurt Hildebrand at 782-5121, ext. 215 with questions.
