    Post your 1 Best Photo from January 2019.

    What this is, is a Thread for each of us to post our BEST photo from the photos we had posted here at FocalWorld the previous Month.

    In this case from January. It doesn't have to have been taken in January, it simply needs to have been Posted at FocalWorld some time in January. (If you have a hard time remembering what you posted here last month, just click on your Profile Page and click on Postings to see a list. At the Bottom of it you can click on Show all Threads)

    And most importantly, it can be from any of the Forums! While we are heavy with our Landscape postings, this thread will be for all of the forums. So if your Best photo was a City photo, post it here. If it was a People photo, post it here. The idea is to be able to all come together and share our Best photo, and perhaps open some peoples eyes to other types of photography as they look through the postings.

    This might take some thinking from everyone, it might take some tough choices to just pick one. Remember there is no right or wrong choice, just pick the one that spoke the most to you.

    Have fun! :)

    Jim

    This is my favourite from January. I hope you don't mind I have removed my usual wide white border and resized the image to 1200px Ken _DSC3872-1 wide white stroke 1200.jpg

    This is my favorite photo for January. It's been a long time waiting for it and I'm happy I did it eventually as I saw in my mind.

    I'll go with my early morning shot in Kern Canyon, northeast from Bakersfield. Patchy fog drifted down the canyon, softening the light and contrast, but not stopping the brightly colored willows from showing out.

    I was going to pick one of my Rattlesnake Mountain photos, but after reading Jim’s post at the start of this thread, I’ll go with this shot of my wife’ Snoodle, Bella, trying to smell her ball under the snow.
