When I first saw the Photography Lovers End of Year Contest Announcement post over on Hive, I knew two things – I’d have to enter my favorite shots from 2021, and given how many photos I’ve taken over the past twelve months, it would be tough to pick my favorites. I decided to do like many others have done, and choose one picture for each month (much like I did back in 2017 when I put together a calendar on Zazzle).
A few days ago, I started looking back through my posts, and discovered I was right – it was hard coming up with favorites because I didn’t have nearly as many awesome shots as I thought. Talk about a humbling experience.
In fact, my entire year of shutterbugging pretty much came down to, “tons of trees and many moons.” 😵😂
However, I’m actually glad because I have been feeling a bit in a rut and now that I know that I truly am, I’m going to make a plan to go places other than our backyard and get a better variety of captures so I don’t have this problem again next year (plus, it will be fun…lol).
As for these photos, as per my usual FYI – these were all taken in the yard of my Durham, NH home with my Nikon, firmly affixed to my my tripod. All were resized, then cleaned up a bit with PicMonkey – mostly the exposure and sharpness.
