Favorite Photos – 2013

I like to back-pedal through the images each year and savor the memories they conjure.  As I do, I note the photos I really like, or think are notable in some artistic way.  Here’s my reposting of favorites from this year past.

I stitched together 3 separate photos to get this image.  This composite doesn't do it just "live."  It was a breath-taking moment.

And that’s it.  There are more photos, of course, but none that struck my fancy as worth reposting.  Have a Happy New Year everyone.  Next post will illustrate re-wicking my trawler lamp/cabin heater.

    Thanks for sharing your year with us, and thank you for sharing a few days with us last May. Cathy and I are planning to make the trip to Virginia for the Watkins rendezvous in 2014. Hope to see you and Ruth there!
