Monthly Theme Day: Best Photo of the Year


Maybe this isn't the best photo of the year, but it's easily in my top five favs from the year (I have a hard time choosing favorites!). I couldn't have been more mad at myself when we took this flight path leaving the airport and BOTH of my batteries were dead - what's the point of having a spare if you don't keep it charged, Sarah?? I was lucky enough that we took the same flight path back in when we landed a week later. I say lucky because I've never before and never again taken this flight path. Between the luck of being on the right side of the plane for both flights, the picture quickly became one of my favs because I knew I probably wouldn't have a chance to do it again. But believe you me, I always have my camera in my lap waiting just in case!

Great areal shot! Those pesky batteries. I too had a similar experience. It was the batteries, hey simply would not hold a charge any longer. Thus new batteries. happy new year!

Lovely shot. Do you like taking photos up in the air?

I look forward to visiting your blog more often this 2008. And you're welcome to mine, too! For some reason, my link was not included in the participating blogs for the 1st of January 2008 theme day. Sorry I wasn't able to visit your blog sooner. I was in transit the whole of yesterday. I am now back in Norwich after the most fantabulous time at home in Manila.

Happy New Year to you and everyone you hold dear!
