Sunday Stills Best of 2010

I had a horrible time choosing my best photos of 2010. So, I just picked some of my favorites and that got to be a hard chore too! I know I missed some other good photos among all of them I took in the past year.

This June 26 thunderstorm had hail and a funnel cloud with it.

"Out in Twin Buttes"  This was Badger's first ride in our Twin Buttes pasture
when we were gathering pairs in June. Hope was along too to help us. My husband
was so tickled with how this little horse did that day!

I love all your photos, it's such a beautiful place. I guess I should post a few more from our little farm.

Hi Judy! Happy New Year! All these are really good..I really like them all for different reasons..the first one shows the intensity in the clouds, it is a great shot..and then the pond at sunset is just beautiful. I also liked the ones with your "Grands" and the Mules made me laugh out loud.. well done! :)

Linda said...

You did good! I love all of them but the rake pic stands out the most. The green this time of year doesn't hurt much either. Happy New Year!

Oh my goodness! All your photos are gorgeous....of course, living in a beautiful place such as you do, it's no surprise. YOur photography is great, too. If I had to choose my favorites, it would be the Hay Rake because it's like a piece of art. And I'd choose the Coneflower because I love how it's the centerpiece in such a vast landscape and looks o fragile, but isn't.
And I also have to choose that Signs of Winter on the pond photo...it just takes my breath away.

Lots of very special memories in this post for you, I'm sure. :)

love the pool! Fantastic colour and texture

Shirley said...

All the photos are so representative of your lifestyle. For sheer beauty, the icy pond; the mules are wonderful, the thunderstorm is downright scary/beautiful, but overall I like the second photo best.

Ed said...

Happy New Year..
