Post your favorite photo of 2012

For a Photography site you guys don't post that many pictures. I thought to get more posting of your great shots I would start this thread. It doesn't have to be your best picture of 2012 just one of your favorite.

I get the ball rolling.

One of my favorite is a simply shot of a Gulf Fritillary Butterfly. I like the brite colors and the
beautiful markings, like the fake eyes on their's wing.

    Pretty butterfly!

    Here's mine. The lighting's not good, the composition's not good and the clarity's not good. But that's me in the chair, Vince Austin on the leader and nearly 400 lbs of blue marlin jumping along side the boat. They'll be "better" pictures posted, but they won't top this one on my "favorite from 2012" list.

    I'll have a think about it, but not sure I can pick one. This year we have been to Niagara Falls and Toronto, Ireland, Rome, Herculaneum and the Almalfi Coast, Barcelona, and many weekends on the boat. I have a number of favorites from those trips.

    I mean, look at this for a lunch table!

    I'm with Mac, I shoot way too much to have an actual favorite. However. I am posting the recent contest winner below. Not really a "favorite" as I like B-I-F shots so much more, but because it is a winner I am suppose to like it. Nikon D7000, f5.6, ISO 100, 1/640 second. "Mating Pair" shot at Wakodahatchee Wetlands.

    My favorite from this year. After being diagnosed with full renal failure, we thought for sure we would have to put her down. Found out it was Addison's disease. This was her ride home from the vet, just in time for Christmas.

    I like Flash's best. Birds and butterfly's are nice but the best pictures to me tell a story.

    the best pictures tell a story.

    Agreed, in some cases.

    In other cases it's all about "the wow factor".

    Gonna be hard for me to pick one. Maybe I'll just go with the one that got the most "likes" on my facebook pages.

    Sunsets and sunrises tend to be a dozen a penny - but that sure is a nice crisp shot.

    Well done sir.

    Another, from sunrise Sunday May 20. At anchor, got up and put the coffee on and got the dog in the dingy to take her to shore. As I was pulling away from the stern saw this shot. Went back and asked the missus to hand down the camera and took the shot. Pretty pleased with the outcome - especially since I just had the boat waxed!
