Email your photos taken in and around Ashland to betling@ashland.news. Be sure and include the names of people in the photo (if any, from left to right and front to back), where and when taken, and say what’s going on in the photo and the name of the person who took it. Note: Photos with a horizontal (“landscape”) orientation work better in our web design.
