Happy New Year!
Well, this is my favourite image of the past year.  As it is always very difficult to select just one, these would be the runner ups if you’d like to see them: 1. Out of the water 2. Muriwai sunset 3.  Winter beach 4. My heart is a beast 5. Walking in the rain

  1. Stunning photo! I liked all of your runners up too but this photo is pretty impressive. I love that you can see allllllll the way out yet the foreground is entertaining too. Super!

  2. Ha sido un verdadero placer seguir tus fotos cada dia durante todo el año.
    Que el Nuevo 2009 que acaba de comenzar sea un buen año para ti y tu familia.

  3. Be careful when you post a picture like this…everyone who sees it might up and move to New Zealand and spoil it for the rest of you! This is so beautiful I just can’t stop looking at it.

  4. What a magnificent view. And the grazing sheep adds the perfect, pastoral touch. Beautiful!

    Happy theme day! And happy new year too. Wishing you peace and prosperity in 2009.

  5. Happy New Year,Lacho!
    I like your choise for today – very ecological! At least 90% from your pictures are my Favorits! Cheers!

  6. Excellent choice. Looking at your runner ups I’m sure you had a challenging task in choosing.

    Happy New Year!!

  7. You’ve taken so many wonderful photos, I can see why it was hard to choose. This is just beautiful. Happy New Year!

  8. Dear Lachezar, how many times did you make me dream through one of your photos…This one is just perfect, once again. Thank you. Je te souhaite une Très Bonne Année 2009.

  9. Lachezar, You are by far one of the most talented, consistently excellent image makers in our whole CDPB family. Considering there are over 450 of us, that is saying something. I know you live in a beautiful area, but so do many others. What I admire is your unique vision and your perfect presentations of creative and excellent shots. Very inspiring. This photo is one among so many memorable and appealing shots. I’m glad you had to do the choosing, because I would not be able to. Happy New Year to you!

  10. How did you choose from such a wonderful selection. All are so beautiful. Technically supbert and telling a story as well.

    Happy New Year!

  11. If I was dreaming New Zealand (and I have to because I’ve never visited) it would look like this. Happy NEw YEar from London

  12. You had so many beautiful photos. Thank you for sharing your runner up photos. I would not have been able to choose. They are all lovely. Happy New Year.

  13. Happy new year, Lachezar.
    My reaction to this is I saw this before. and then I realise it’s a theme day that we post one of the fav. Good choice! I have to say. I would chosen “Muriwai sunset”, but your choice is more like NZ to outside world. In that count, I would 100% agree with your choice.

    You have a wonderful time and great 2009!

  14. The perfect choice Lachezar. The view is not only spectacular but so typical New Zealand and the composition is perfect. Happy Theme Day & an awesome 2009!

  15. I’m not sure how you chose a favourite from your wonderful collection, but I can’t argue with the choice.

    Top Shot!

    Cheers, and all the best for 2009.

  16. I am so impressed with this, your favorite photograph. I also enjoyed reading your blog about some of the runner ups. I looked at them too and really thought Winter Beach and My Heart is a Beast were winners too. But, like you, the favorite is my favorite too.

    I don’t have a lot to say about last year or this new year but here are some thoughts…

    I hope 2009 will be better than 2008, 2007, and 2006. I do think our government will be inspired by our new President Obama — at least I hope so.

    I would like to see the War in Irag end and I would like to see the killing stop everywhere.

    It is my hope that Japan will stop slaughtering whales and raping virgin forests.

    And I hope the people will lose their clubs and no longer club baby seals to death.

    What a world we have and live in. 2009 could be so much better than it will be.
