Photo Friday: Best of 2005

Photo Friday is forcing us to decide. My single best photo taken during 2005? That's a tough one. I would say my best collection of photos this year were taken during a trip to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in July. The photo above is representative of those pictures. More can be seen in my July archive.

This is dawn in a valley adjacent to the Smokies where my wife and I rented a small cabin for a week. The sun had risen, but not yet crested the ridge in the background, giving the sky its hue through the morning fog.

Very nice! Early morning light works well with your composition with the cabin in the foreground.

Very beautiful. I could almost feel myself in this scene.

Beautiful! I can see why you chose this one.

I had trouble deciding, too. Since none of mine have gotten a noteworthy yet, I threw in something entirely different. It's here, if you're curious:
