Newbury Canal at Night
With just a few days to go until the launch of this blog, I thought perhaps it's a good time to reflect over one of my highlights of 2011. Although I can see where I would change it now, this is probably my best picture of 2011. Some pictures you take, you know it's a good one straight away but I really didn't have that thought with this one. I'd been out taking pictures for a couple of hours that night and the picture I was most excited about taking was my 'Building a Newbury Sunset' which I took the same evening. I had a good feeling about this one in the processing stage though and I think posted it on Flickr first. The immediate feedback was great. Lots of comments and favourites added to it and to this day is my 2nd most viewed picture on Flickr (only beaten by one outside a football ground which would naturally have a larger fan base). Other pictures have perhaps been more successful in other ways throughout the year but this always sticks in my head as my best shot of the year.
