January Photo Thread

@Kaminokaze does not seem to be around just now, so I thought we'd get the January photo thread going. When Kaminokaze returns, he/she can take over.

So ... Water it is!

The rules are simple:
-You must be the photographer
-One entry per month
-Try making it an image from the last year.

Voting:
- Vote for your top 3
- No voting for yourself

And if you are the winner one month ... you're in charge the month after the next. For example ... if you win in January, you're in charge of March. If you win in April, you're in charge of June.
You pick the theme, you count the votes, you announce the new winner.

Second and third most votes = Honorable Mentions

Haven't posted a picture here in a while. Michigan offers abundant opportunities to photograph water. So hard to pick just one...

Bump ... no excuses not to submit a photo in this month's contest. Everyone has access to water ... even if it's just a droplet.

I don't know how to say this Danno. But is there any chance your image was used elsewhere? And by that I mean "borrowed" and altered? Possibly without your knowledge?

Just about every photo I've taken in recent weeks has had water in it ... that's what comes from living less than 1 km from the beach.


In the evening ...

I didn't know that this thread existed until Machka mentioned it elsewhere. Interesting!

So many to choose from with water, but I think that I'll go with one from last month, before we froze solid -
