2009 Best Of Photo - Theme Day: Changes

Those of you looking for the Theme Day: Changes Photo, you'll have to scroll down to the second photo as I'm posting my "Best Of 2009" photo first and the "Theme Day" photo second.

Best Photo of 2009 Looking back on all of the photos I captured in 2009, this one stood out the most. It was really an experimental photo, perhaps that's why I like it the most. On this particular night, I was out taking photos of a major lightning storm. The rain hadn't started yet at the time. After 15 minutes of dry weather, the skies opened up and I retreated to the safety of my garage as the rain fell. While waiting for the rain to slow a little bit before I headed into my house, I snapped a couple of photos of the street lights shining off of my vehicles parked in the driveway. After viewing the photos of the night on my monitor, this photo turned out better than the lightning photos I captured.

Theme Day: Changes Greetings Theme Day viewers. Welcome to 2010 and my theme day of Changes. For me personally, a major change was tearing the roof off my home in 2009. With the help of several friends, we installed a wonderful new roof in about three days. It was quite a bit of work for all of us involved, but after several good rains storms, there are no leaks! Plus it did pass the city inspection. Life is good.

Happy New Year - looks like a reassuringly shallow pitch! The change to "Changes" caught me on the hop, too.

Love the photo - a great choice. You had the perfect light, rain, reflection that day but more to the point you saw it and captured it! Well done.

My goodness, tearing the roof off your house is no small feat and dangerous!

Wishing you and your loved ones the very best for 2010, Slinger. Health, happiness and peace and all that jazz xxx

Your best photo is quite a beauty! The lighting is sublime and has an almost movie like quality to it.

I would never getup on my roof and do what you did! I had my roof replaced about 8 years ago and it was worth every penny to pay someone else to do it.

A beautiful choice for 'best of' and an amusing choice for the "changes". Best wishes for 2010,
