    Post your 1 Best Photo from May 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 May. It doesn't have to have been taken in May, it simply needs to have been Posted at FocalWorld some time in May.

    (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

    I don't think I posted much in May, but this would be my favorite.

    From the Tyne Valley, famous for coal mining and shipbuilding but go 30 miles upstream and you find rural solitude. very Final_DSC5285-Pano-1 CROPPED mono 3 final v2 copy for printing MIST 3 flat.jpg

    This is a frame grab from my drone that was hovering and shooting video as I solo skied this steep gully on Mt. Pilchuck in the Cascades. Not the best shot photographically, but a great memory of a good day of skiing and learning to use my drone.

    I haven't done much shooting lately, but that is about to change. With limited choices, I'm going with this one from the Kruse reserve on the NorCal coast.

    I am awestruck, you get here, you are hovering a drone and ski-ing down that gully obviously you had your underwear on outside of your pants. Ken
