SUNDAY STILLS CHALLENGE...GIVE ME YOUR TWO BEST SHOTS

I picked these two shots from 2009, but I probably have others that might be better. Since I started this Journal in February of 2008 I have taken an average of 500 pictures a week...that's over 26,000 per year (and they are all stored on CDs). I must be out of my mind! Do you wonder why my posts are so long?

I'm a morning person and this first shot was taken a little after the sun started to rise. I like it for it's composition and color...it really gives off the feeling of our farm.



This is a picture of our 29 year old pony, Babe's Opal. We call her Pone or Pony. I selected it as one of my best macro shots because of it's clarity and currently display it as my header.

Ed, this was a great way to sum up 2009. Thanks.

  6. Like the sky!

    me too took 30.000 photos last year.
    But this year I have started lightroom and that is a good program to organise your phoytos an dyou tag them so you can find them again.
