      Like Bobby I thought you had been involved in photography for a  long time Pat! And BTW – I still am very scattered in what I shoot and it’s been > 45 years since I got my first 35mm camera!

      I agree so hard to choose but I will share a photo that I took in May but overlooked. I edited it only a few days ago. Smallest baby elephant I have seen in ages and the trunk belongs to a massive bull elephant.

      This was such a great moment to capture as that smile means she is “hooked”!

          It most definitely is, Rob! Although, I must tell you, it’s nearly 3,500 ft above sea level. This is an old picture from my trip to Leh, in Northern India. If I find more pics that are good, I’ll for sure upload them.

      @Bruce Gordon – don’t know your other choices, but like the lighting, composition and lonely feel to this one.

      Currently not being at home (and thus having no access to my photos), I can not share “the one” in the Showcase – if ever there was one worth it …

      Best wishes for 2020 ! With a deep thought for the people facing disaster in Australia.

      P71, if I may…. Keep doing what you’re doing because you are doing it very well, IMHO. Shoot what you love! Shoot what strikes you! Your images all have a fresh and interesting look that, I think, reflects what you see and want the viewer to see. Don’t lose that spark by trying to force something there, if you know what I mean…. Happy New Year!

      My old stomping grounds! I was there when they put the final piece in the top center on October 28th, 1965.  I hate to admit it, but I was 7 at the time. Nice image!

      Lovely images Leanne! Looking at your daughter’s image and your icon photo, I gotta ask…Is she your daughter or your clone? 😉 Best wishes for the New Year!

        Bruce – my clone! I love it. She is the daughter that gets more “looks like you” comments, for sure. And now she has the fishing bug too. Poor child.

        Happy 2020 to you!

      Patrick (P71), I find your work appealing, you do have a very good eye. Wish you a happy new year and sincerely hope that you do not let your determination to become a “better” photographer suffocate the most important aspects of your work, playfulness and creativity.

      Some favorites from my adventures in 2019.

      Visiting my sister in South Carolina, I didn’t expect finding this great barn when we went to a hair salon.

      Dismals Canyon in Alabama is a great day hike.

      Woodford Reserve in Kentucky has a great tour of the distillery. The surrounding countyside is gorgeous, all of it is horse farms.

      My favorite place I visited was Red River Gorge Kentucky. I am eager to go back.

      I really like your City Lights abstract Pat. Looks very 60’s to me. Can see it as a back drop for Rowan and Martin. 🙂

      Bruce. Your stone ruins, doorway shot is terrific. Such beautiful light and color.

      Diane. Your flower shot is beautiful. The pastel colors look stunning.

      I find Elin’s dramatic landscape in a class by itself.

      Also like the light and subtle tone variations in John’s Grand Canyon shot.

      Also need to mention Leesa’s B&W image of a very cool looking barn. Nice job Leesa. You also asked about a landscape by Dave. I think I’m the only Dave, not David, here but I didn’t post a landscape shot. Wrong name? Also thanks for your comment on the coneflower pic. 🙂

      I probably left out an image or two but my index finger is sore from pecking at the keyboard so I’ll go now.
