@U2 readers submitted nearly 300 photos for our Capturing 360 photo contest and our staff had the very difficult job of sorting through some outstanding pictures from all over the globe. It was great to read many heart-warming stories about special moments, songs and experiences that were associated with all of the wonderful photos.
Some of the favorite themes for our photogs included the festive and chaotic "I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight," the fog and laser beams of "Ultraviolet" and "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me," and, of course, the beauty and splendor of the magnificent Claw.
Please join us in congratulating our winners!
