Theme Day- Photo of the Year

Welcome 2015!
Here we go again. It's the first of the month and time for Theme Day across the world-wide CDPB (citydailyphotoblog) community. I always find 'photo of the year' to be like answering the the question: so of all your children who's your favorite? It's always a hard task for me. Someone, please go through my 365 latest and pick one... anyone. Well, here goes. I'm picking one from last January of the Eastern Prom caught in the lull of a storm. Bare tree, storm-laced gray sky and this bench overlooking Casco Bay. There, my work is done.
Resolutions this year?
Playing it close to the vest.
One though, I'll reveal.
Plan to keep posting here, everyday. 
I haven't missed a day since December 31, 2008.
Keep on, keeping on.

  5. I do like your choice, Birdman. I agree that it's extremely difficult to choose a favourite, though. All the best in 2015!

  7. Whatever else is your inventory, this is a wonderful choice. The bleakest part of the Maine winter, yet holding an invitation to humanity. HNY!

  8. That is some photo!! I wish you and your family a great 2015. I don't do resolutions. I have worked hard and long on my bad habits and are not giving them up now.

  12. I think I actually remember this one. Very pretty. I doubt that much snow has EVER been seen here in East Texas. Now, rain, that's a different story. We're forecast for up to five inches today and tomorrow! I get soggy just thinking about it! Happy New Year!
