My favourite photo of 2012 - Fire Dragon

© Shaun P Downey 2012

I've reworked a lot of photos this year but I have not taken many new ones at all...but then depression has been a key feature of the year. This was taken when Shirley was burning ivy and this was a lucky shot.There'snot manipulation whatsoever,  just a stopped down 135mm lens and spot focusing on the flame rather than anything around it

I was trying to take pictures of migrating butterlies today, and missed most of them altogether.

This is a spectacular photo.

Hopefully your depression will lift in 2013, which I am sure will lead you to feeling more creative again.

By the way, how's the disk drive situation? Hope of getting the photos back?
