     Create a postcard from one of your pictures from this year’s trip to Alberta.  The photo you choose must be of something you found interesting in terms of a natural landscape/geographic feature, and you must appear in it.  Upload your final work as a JPEG or PDF file.  You may add text/graphics to the photo to make it more like a post card, but you may not change any of the composition of the photo itself.  The original photo may be asked for verification purposes.
