It's been a wonderful year of blogging and I have enjoyed meeting so many creative artists, poets, writers and photographers in the blogosphere! I have learned a lot from you, by viewing your work, and your comments and support have been so valuable to me. As 2012 draws to a close, I would like to show you some of my and your favorite photographs of the year. Also, in appreciation of your readership, I would like to give one of you a print, matted with a frame, of one of your favorite photographs as a gift! To participate, please leave a comment on this post and let me know your favorite photograph. You may choose from the 12 photos here or any other you like from past posts. I will have a random drawing, and the winner will be announced in January 2013!
