Weekly Photo Challenge: Favorites

Favorite photos. This can be a tough one. Alot of my favorites are the ones I have just taken. But in reviewing my library there are several that have remained as favorites. They are ones I have named and have exhibited. Here they are and some info about each pic. (I probably missed one or two of my top favorites in this list. (the list grows longer each year)

Shadows of History – taken at Fort Morgan Alabama. It is a civil war fort. I half expect to see the ghost of a civil war soldier to peer around the corner of the door.
Blue Dawn – this was taken at Horicon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge one morning. Dawn allows the blue light to dominate giving a serene feeling.
Reflection – also taken at Horicon Marsh. It was a flat calm wind and it allowed some beautiful reflection giving it an almost optical illusion.
Woodland Symphony – taken on a trail in Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge in Gulf Shores Alabama.
The Gaze – taken near Fox Lake, Wisconsin. A snowy owl had taken up residence for the winter close to the road leading to some great photo ops.
Remembrance – taken at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C.
Ghostly Dawn – also take at Horicon Marsh. The fog was still thick but the sun was bright and created some unique lighting.
Still Watch – at the Horicon Marsh. Also taken just after dawn when it was flat calm and you had the blue light.
The Miss – A great Grey Owl in Northern Wisconsin diving for a unseen sound in the snow next to my car door. (it didn’t get the mouse?)
Snowy Road – taken just after a sudden snowfall blew through near LaCrosse Wisconsin.
Breaking Dawn – at times you can get a brilliant orange light at dawn instead of the blue. With the fog it created a dramatic photo.
Robert Frost Road – this is my absolute favorite. It was snowing and it was on a Rustic Road near Portage Wisconsin. It is the living image of the Robert Frost poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”. Especially the three lines
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
