One of the best parts of finishing another successful summer season is the opportunity to look at all of the amazing photographs that our groups capture in the field. This year, our groups set new records — both in terms of artistic quality and overall quantity. It’s hard to believe that in just eight weeks, our groups took nearly 33,000 photos and made exponentially more memories.
Over the past few weeks, the WV office staff took the time to look at each and every photograph, rating each trip’s photos on several different metrics, including how fun the trip looked, the quality of group shots, the inclusion of iconographic sites in photographs and (most subjective) the general awesomeness of the photos taken.
