Heat Features

If there was one request that I could honestly say I have received every day since my internship started, it would have to be the heat feature request.

The guys in my department are obsessed with heat features; an image that embodies the spirit of summer.  And who could blame them?  It’s a great chance to connect with the community and tell the story of summer.

The heat feature photo mentality has been branded into me, and now it’s become a daily challenge.

Here are some heat feature photos I have made this summer.

Staff Photographers from The Oklahoman headed out into the snowstorms over the weekend to look for pictures. On Christmas eve, Jim Beckel got stuck at the airport, Paul Southerland went to El Reno and was stuck in the snow out there for hours.  Here's a few of the many images that were sent in over the weekend.
