This week’s photo was taken by Nelson photographer, Tineke Reese. There are many fire hydrants around town, but perhaps none so picturesque as the one around the corner from Oso. This awesome shot was spotted on the West Kootenay Photography Group on Facebook. 

Each week we’ll 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 directly.

As a all-volunteer organization, we cannot pay for photos. 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.
