We’ve tried a lot of photo memes over the years, but none of them seem to stick. There are some ideas for next year floating around (if you have any, let us know!) but we thought to close out 2016 we’d share some of our favorite photos we took, and why they’re our favorites. A photo a day for ten days, as we countdown to 2017.
Feel free to share your own photos in the comments.
This photo was supposed to be a joke and ended up being one of my most popular photos on all social media. When I went to visit Meg in NC we climbed up this ginormous sand dune WHICH WAS AWESOME but omg it was so windy. My hair was obscuring my vision, which is dangerous when you’re hiking up sand in pre-hurricane winds, so I took off my scarf to use as a headband. That led to this supermodel look.
The lighting in this picture is so perfect. The sun is backlighting the horses so it must have been morning. I took it during this one particular week when the biting flies were TERRIBLE and all the horses were hanging out on the beach trying to stay away from them. You can see in this picture that they’re stomping and swishing their tails, even as they’re walking.
I love this shot of the jellyfish. They are such a soothing animal to watch. They are almost hypnotic in their movements. The Jelly Cam has gotten me through some really stressful times this year. I just love how this turned out.
