Reflecting Vancouver is the name of a photograph taken by Los Alamos resident Martha Katko that National Geographic Magazine has chosen as one of its eight Editor’s Choice photos for the week.
Katko is a Senior Human Resources Tech with Los Alamos County. She shot the winning photo while recently visiting Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
