This month’s image comes to us from Michael Dill. While smokey skies are not a great way to spend the waining weeks of summer, they do make for beautiful sunsets. With choppers still flying overhead, we hopefully have said goodbye to the 2018 fire season. 

A longtime resident of Nelson, Michael has made photography his hobby, but he does sell prints of his work. You can check out more of his images on his Flickr page. If you’d like to purchase his work, contact him directly at

Each month we feature a new photo of life in the Kootenays. We’ll be cruising the various sites around the internet dedicated to local photography to reach out to photographers, but if you’d like to submit a photo, here’s how you can do it. Tag your image with #kootenaycoopradio on Instagram, or send us a note.

As a all-volunteer organization, we cannot pay for photos. Instead, you join the ranks of over 100 people who generously donate their time and talent to help co-create Kootenay Co-op Radio. You of course retain the rights to your image, it’s just on loan to us.
