A: Do you know?

I don't know how to begin picking a favorite image from this year. There were so many times this year that I could not wait to upload my images to the computer. There were so many times that I did and I was so excited by what I had captured. Each image marked a step and the changes in the year. I enjoy every second that I am looking thru my lens no matter what I am shooting but I must say that the time I spent in Corpus Christi was probably one of the most peaceful times I have known in my life. I miss the quiet on the beach and the hours I spent looking for new birds. I miss the life that the ocean brings. I miss all five of my senses being so alive. Leaving the ocean was so hard for me. I miss it everyday and I so miss the life there.
Lightbox please.

    Lightbox is incredible! I've been lucky enough to live by the ocean most all of my life with a year in Lake Tahoe somewhere in between. I'm not certain, but I don't know if I could survive too far from the sea. Even if I can't see it . . . so long as I can smell it, I know everything is alright. It's really a beautiful image, Regenia. It's as good, and maybe better, than a lot of wildlife shots I've seen. I'm really grateful I get to share in your talent. Love you and Happy Christmas! R

    I think your choice is perfect! I love everything about this one....the incredible detail and the simplicity, the dearth of color yet that fabulous orange beak, and the overall serenity of the shot.

    The light box is a "must" for this one. Like you, I've always lived near the ocean and would miss it if I had to move away from it. Perhaps you'll come back to it one day.
