The Best Of Last Year - #123

Happy New Year!

To start the year we have our monthly theme day and this time the theme is the best shot of 2006. This is my personal favourite, I only posted it recently so it's a little weird posting it again so quickly, but it really is my favourite shot of the year!

The 2 runner up shots were:

Blooop x 1,000


Langdons Cascade

Wishing you the very best for 2007.

Great Photo!

Happy New Year from Albuquerque Daily Photo!

Kim said...

Bluey, somehow I knew it would be a camel, but my fave shot lingers in memory of the fellow with the serious face in full caftan in the desert. You have so many great shots, though. This one reminds me of the camel that spat on me at the zoo when I was very young. . .fun shot. Happy New Year to you!

Lavender Lady said...

Wow! I think it is a great photo, but you must have had a hard time choosing.

Ham said...

So many of your pics are excellent, but this would have been my favourite, too, with or witout the fly! Happy New Year from London

Gerald England said...

brings a smile -- happy 2007

Kris said...

Cheers to 2007!

edwin s said...

karine said...

Happy New Year from Buenos Aires daily :)

Matthieu said...

I like this one so much !

Some people would certainly take a non smoking resolution in 2007 (you may have heard of Camel).

Happy new year 2007 and best wishes for the following days.

Lisi said...

I totally agree this is your best (so far, more to come for sure)! I once tried to take a similar shot of my sister's golden retriever and when I got close enough, the dog gave the lense a friendly lick...ouch!

ruth said...

A great representative shot of Dubai. I always enjoy your site, and I look forward to many more wonderful photos in 2007.

Ame said...

Absolutely adore this photo. It's soooo cute. It also reminds me of all that advertising for Camel cigarettes that went on a few years ago in the U.S. I don't think I've dropped by your blog before, but I'm sure I'll be dropping by more often.
