Ten Favorite Photos of 2010

As 2010 comes to a close, I took a look back at some of my favorite photos from this year. The highlight of the year by far was the trip my husband and I took in the spring to California. In a week we drove from Napa to Los Angeles, and I would have loved to have had more time. The scenery along the Pacific Coast Highway was simply stunning, so it’s no surprise that several of my favorites are from that trip. It was hard to narrow it down to only ten, and there isn’t really any rhyme or reason for why these photos are my favorites. There is something about each one that I love, so I hope you enjoy them all and have a wonderful 2011!

  8. Looks like you had a fun year Elizabeth! Some wonderful images from you CA trip (thanks for visiting us!). I love the photo of Niagara Falls primarily because you captured a unique view. At first glance I didn’t realize it was Niagara; not an easy task considering it’s such an iconic landmark. Well done!
