2012: The year in pictures
From fires to Fiesta Days and valentines to veterans, the Daily Republic photographers were on the scene of many events during 2012.
Throughout the year, photo editor Brad Zweerink and his staff, Conner Jay and Robinson Kuntz, have snapped their shutters thousands of times, some in hazardous circumstances, other times in joyful settings.
Each year the photographers choose some of their favorite pictures from the past 12 months and share them with readers. You can also follow their work at www.dailyrepublic.com/photos.
