As many photographers look back on their year in photos, I will do the same.
This summer I ended my four-plus year time at the Winona Daily News in Winona, Minn. At the WDN, I was the only full-time photographer with a staff of three part-timers. I often worked six days a week covering everything. Lots of news and lots of sports.
I may reflect on my year in a post later this week.

(Andrew Link/Winona Daily News) City of Winona employees cut open and remove blocks of ice from East Lake Winona on Thursday, Feb. 5, 2015, morning in preparation for the Goose Bump Jump and Cardinal Plunge this Saturday. In their 10th year opening a 25-foot by 35-foot hole in the ice, the city crew had the process down to a science. Ice blocks were cut with chainsaws and pulled up with a pick on a tractor. The 17-inch thick blocks were then pushed to the side and out of the way. (Andrew Link/Winona Daily News) Winona and Goodview firefighters battle a fire at 151 E.
