Happy New Year!!

Posted in Photography on December 31, 2011 by paintedmeadows

As 2011 winds down and we look around the corner to 2012 I wish you all the best.  I hope you had a wonderful 2011 full of happiness and love and that 2012 will be even better!!  I managed to completely finish the 2011 365 day challenge and have signed up for the 2012 366 day challenge.  I have learned so much this year and I feel that I have really grown as a photographer.  I took some online photography courses and some Photoshop Elements courses that I will continue into 2012.  Thank you all for taking the time to view my photos and for commenting.  I have made many new friends and touched base with some old ones.  What more could a person ask for!  Happy New Years to you all!!

Oops, that last post was for December 28th.  This one is for December 29th.

These guys were out on some VERY thin ice trying to take some fish home for their tables.  More courageous than me!  I took this out the window while driving (hubby was driving) so not the best capture.

I love this piece of driftwood at the beach.  It was just beautiful.  I used Topaz 5 with the Vibrant collection but I can’t remember the exact filter.  Sorry.  This posting is for December 26th.

Hi all.  Happy New Year!!  I am home now from my Christmas at my Mom’s.  Since I am so close to the end of completing this challenge I am going to post the last 7 pictures tonight.  This photo was taken from the ferry as we were arriving at Nanaimo, British Columbia.  I used Topaz 5 and applied the HDR Dynamic Brightness filter.  The storm clouds were just lifting and the sun was breaking through.  It was beautiful!!  So this photo was for December 25th.
