It happens in moments. Cheerleaders hit the floor between quarters in a varsity basketball game, unroll a mat. Four form a platform with their arms, and Natalie Holmes, a Mount Si junior, is catapulted into the air. She twists in the air, then lands in the arms of the four girls below. In a few seconds, they’ve rolled up the mat. Their stunt is done, and the game continues. This performance took many hours to perfect. It may not be the main event of the night. But these cheerleaders are part of a squad that has gone farther than any Wildcat team this year.

True nature: Reader Photo Contest celebrates the Valley's grand outdoors | Slideshow

  • Feb 27, 2013 at 5:04PM

Mount Si is back on top again in the Valley Record staff’s judgment for this year’s Amateur Photo Contest. Staff chose Bill Cottringer of North Bend, now a two-time winner in the contest, for his evocative shot of a rustic barn with a Mount Si view. This perspective, he says, gets missed by most travelers on Ballarat Road, since the barn and the mountain are on opposite sides of the road, and passersby may not know the barn is there. On a sunny day last December, Cottringer took this photo with a Canon 5-D Mark III camera with a 16-35 mm super wide angle lens, circular polarizer and square handheld neutral density filter. Cottringer has been shooting photos as an avid hobbyist for more than 50 years—he bought his first camera in Japan when he was serving in the U.S. Air Force—without a bit of formal instruction, simply trial and error.

Readers' animal photos show Valley as a fantastic place to live | Slideshow

  • Feb 27, 2013 at 4:56PM

The Snoqualmie Valley Record's staff judges seem to have preferred our feathered friends in the first Animals photo contest. It can be tough to see evocative feelings in birds, as opposed to furry companions like dogs and cats, or our lively four-footed wildlife, such as Valley elk. Yet first-place winner Pat McMartin of North Bend seems to have captured a universal feeling—facing a rainy day with spirit—in the shot of a fluffed-up, shiny bird in front of the home bird feeder, last November. McMartin, who lives near Rattlesnake Lake, has a quasi-bird sanctuary in his front yard. He watched this young Brewer’s blackbird show up in the rain, feathers poofed, colors highlighted. The bird’s expression brightened Pat’s day.
