This is it, folks - THE Dgrin tradition, by popular demand: the Dgrin Photo of the Year! :barb :smo

Let's keep it simple this year: reply in this thread with the photo that you think is the best of 2009.
The photo may be yours, or someone else's, provided that:
  • it was taken in 2009.
  • it was shared on Digital Grin. This includes all forums, including the challenges.
  • the person who took the photo (dgrin name and/or real name) is mentioned in the post.


Submissions must be received before January 13, 2010, California time.
Every Dgrinner is eligible, including the moderators/administrators.
After the submission period has ended I will add a poll. There will be only one voting round.


The winner will receive bragging rights; Wouldn't you want to be part of this very exclusive group?

    I completely missed this thread when you posted it, Ivar! I was starting to wonder when the thread would start rolleyes1.gif

    Here's just a couple from the past year that really stood out to me, I'll need to take more time when I'm not at work to do a proper list.

    AaronNelson asked me where to find this one and I lied, saying I hadn't posted it to DGrin. Aaron, sorry for the lie, it was in my top 2009 post!
