February 2012 Foo Photo Contest - We have a winner!

We had two winners in December and since the double theme went well last month, I've decided to do it again.

Theme #1, chosen by December co-winner Crazydad: Speed
Theme #2, chosen by December co-winner DannoXYZ: Your best picture, ever

Rules:

Themes: see above
- You must be the photographer
- You may submit one photo for each theme
- Try to make the photos recent (an exception will be made for "best picture, ever")

Good luck everyone!

I don't have a "best ever" shot...because I'm always improving and working on my technique so I can always find something I'm not crazy about. I have a shot that is kind of a fusion of the two themes...it's not recent, but I'll post it up anyway. This was taken straight from the camera with no pp'ing (heck, I didn't even have photoshop back then).

Thanks! That first pic was taken at Emerald Lake, Yoho National Park, BC! An absolutely stunning place, especially in comparison to the boring landscape of SE Wisconsin.
