Default Your favorite of 2008!!!

Hello everyone,

The year is almost over already and it's time again to point out the favorites of the year. 2008 was punctuated by many unhappy events in the numeric TE universe: departures of many many great ones, sloowwwwwwing down of the TE servers, etc... But none of this should shadow the thousands of nice pictures posted this year. Among all of those pictures posted last year, some have stood out from the rest. Those picture show all the talent and the genius of the photographer and just leave you breathless in front of your screen.

I propose that you let us discover what is THE picture (only one) that you placed in your favorite and which is for you, THE shot of last year on TE. The idea is that some of these shots might come from members that are more low profile and whose shots often go unnoticed. Of course, it can also come from more high-profile posters. It can be landscape, street, event, sport...it can be anything as long as it is your favorite. So, we may discover gems that we would not see in any other way. Your favorite pic should have been posted in 2008 by anyone on TE, except from you;). You can also mention why you chose it if there is a particular reason and also mention what pictures were the runner-ups. The goal is also the regroup ourselves as a community and use the forum to have fun...once again...

The pictures will be grouped in a theme as the thread goes on. You can find the theme here (link will appear as soon as 3 pictures will be submitted)

You can see this same thread but for the year 2006 here.
and for the year 2007 here.

My favorite for this year is Lonelywolf's At the edge of the world
I had many runner-ups:

-http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/photo948357.htm
-http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/photo924439.htm
-http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/photo892906.htm
-http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/photo830110.htm


Cheers!

Marc

ps: if you don't know really which one to choose and you don't wanna go through all of last years pics you can either go through your favorites OR browse my themes. I went through all of last years pics (up to september for the moment) and sorted out the best of each day (according to my taste). It might help you find one that stands out.

Ooooh I love this time of year and this question- although it's next to impossible to answer. I think my contribution would have to be 'In the Deep Fog' http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/photo845975.htm by Catherine (noborders)- but of course there are hundreds of excellent ones to choose from!
Cheers!
Sarah

nice pictures have been posted already, but keep the faves coming people!!! We had over 40 last year and we're only at 7 for the moment!

Don't be shy posting your favorite, go ahead!

so here's the promised link for the theme: Your favorites of 2008

For the moments, there are many favorites by polonaise and noborders, maybe those 2 members could come and tell us what their favorite is? would be fun!

Have a good day everyone,

Marc
