I thought I would post my top ten photos on flickr, more of a record for myself as the flickr stats change so regularly and the popular area isn’t accessible to the public.
1. Frozen Swans
Number 1 on the list is the photo of swans on the frozen lake taken on New Years day this year. If you click on any of the images it will take you directly to the photo on flickr.
2. November Walk
This photo was the first few images captured with the Canon 7D the day after I purchased it. This image is licensed by Getty Images.
4. Frozen (Ivy) Heart
5. Fog on the Lough
6. More Rugby
I am not really a sport photographer but I do try and capture the emotion, this tends to work in mono. Although this is a popular image my personal favourite is actually this photo captured at the end of a match. Flickr ranks this one at number fourteen.
7. The Getaway
Having chased a hoverfly around the garden for over an hour I managed to grab this macro shot just before it flew away.
8. Watching the Sunset
I think most people think this photo has been enhanced beyond reality but this is exactly how the sunset appeared the night before an intense storm. People left guest houses and hotels to witness the redest sunset I have seen.
9. Giant BMXer
10. The Church Revisited
I have no idea why this image is popular. It isn’t the type of photo anyone would want to display on their wall yet 700 views and 6 favourites later it makes its way into the top 10.
It will be interesting to revisit the list in six months, I really hope some new photos will break through but as these photos continue to receive comments and favourites that might be a challenge.
