With 2014 coming to an end tonight I wanted to share my 10 favorite photographs I have taken this year.
This is my favorite photo of the year. Luck was definitely on my side that night that this sunset occurred. I was on the beach that night for a beach volleyball game and we had just finished the last of our 6 games when this sunset started taking place. I’ve never seen a sunset so pretty before.
This was taken at Old Westbury Gardens and this photo says serenity to me. If I could crawl into a photograph and live there forever, it would be this one.
My favorite spot at Old Westbury Gardens, the walled garden. I made sure one weekend to get there when the gates opened so I could have this spot all to myself for taking photos.
This was taken in the rose garden at Old Westbury Gardens, I just love how perfect the rose looks.
When I have my camera in hand, I have absolutely zero fear of bees. This guy let me sneak up on him at the hidden dahlia garden in Eisenhower Park.
The Primrose Path at Old Westbury Gardens. There is not a spot on the grounds of the garden that aren’t beautiful.
Yet another from inside the walled garden at Old Westbury Gardens.
A lone daisy at Old Westbury Gardens.
A Betty Boop Rose (how can you not love that name) at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens.
One of the things I love the most about dahlias is how many different varieties there are. At my favorite dahlia spot, so many different varieties are on display.
