My Daily Photo- Top 10…HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Well, I started my Daily Photo Blog at the beginning of 2010, hoping that I learn more about photography, learn my camera and I think I have done that.  I do notice an improvement from the beginning of the year, and now when I want to take a specific photograph, technically- I kinda know what I am doing! 🙂

I wish all of you a very Happy New Year!  I hope you all set goals and reach them (even surpass them!).  I set some goals each year and I try really hard to accomplish them.  Sometimes I feel that just by having some of my goals on my blog, or on Facebook, it helps me, because I feel like “I told the world, so now I have to do it!”

Here are my top 10, as chosen by friends, family, comments, views & myself:

Daily Photo 12.13.10 (Christmas Tree)

I decided to try and photograph some of the ornaments on my tree.  Well, I also photographed my entire tree, but I was not very happy with it, mostly I would need to move it so it would be in a better location, but not worth it.  There are 2 of my favorites.

Daily Photo 7.21.10 (Hummingbird in nest)

I was at our Church this evening and got to see the latest little inhabitant on the grounds.  They noticed this little hummingbird in its nest about a week ago.  It’s been sitting and guarding the nest very carefully.  We assume there are eggs in there.  I will keep up with it and post updates if there are baby hummingbirds at some point!  I just can’t imagine how tiny those things would be!

Daily Photo 6.20.10 (Blue Heron?)

Not sure if this is a Blue Heron or not, but it’s the closest I could find on google.  We went down to Barton Creek to swim, and it was not flowing much in the area that we went to, but before we left, we did see this amazing bird that wanted to have his photo taken!  It waited on the rock until I got my camera out, stuck around for a few poses, then flew away.  I am impressed that I got the photo of him flying!  Gorgeous!
