The last good picture of last year.

If I wasn't such a baby, I would have stood out here all night and driven all over farm country to get a better photo. But it was windchill of -5. Probably. And it was too dark for my camera to focus.

I did have the advantage of my giant trash-bucket car, though, because I actually had my tripod in the back seat.

Just because I'm me, I'll feel better if I admit what's wrong with this shot. Here are the things that make this unviable as a cover photo:
1) ISO way too high=grainy
2) there was probably a better vantage point somewhere, but I almost got my 2 wheel drive car stuck getting to this point, so I wasn't feeling brave
3) It's a little soft on the focus

There. I just needed to say those things. I was thinking that it would be great cover potential, but alas, I was too cold and hungry to stick it out.

Hi Beth - What type of camera do you use? I think it's a great photo! I love taking pictures, but am not up on the knowledge and am hoping to learn more this year. Thanks for any photography information you pass along! Happy new year!
