Focusing on Life 39: Your Best Shot

I thought about this prompt all week. I really did ponder what my best shot is/was.
Like my life in general, my mind turned to thoughts of the beach. I initially thought about my sunrise photos from Spring Break 2012, but I already shared some of those pictures for another Focusing on Life prompt. Then it hit me that the same picture I'm using as the background on my laptop would be perfect.

This was taken about three years ago when Pat and I vacationed in Aruba. I really love the sailboat crossing in front of the sun and the lovers embracing on the left.

I'm still not sure that this is my BEST shot, but definitely one of my most memorable. Make sure you check out what some of the other participants consider their best shot (check out the links below) and visit Sally's blog, The Studio Sublime, to see more about the Focusing on Life series.

    1. Shel, You are so sweet! I was just so pleased that we took the time away from all the vacation-ing to go out on the beach with the camera and get this shot. It worked out perfectly. I'm very glad you like it too!

    1. Janet, I guess so. We saw lots of sunsets in Aruba, but most of the time were without the good camera or were too busy eating, swimming, etc. to get the shots. I think we lucked up with this one! Thank you.

  9. Its quite the gorgeous shot Hope. I think the clouds, their texture totally makes it. The boat is very special, but I have a soft spot for beautiful clouds
