Weekly Photo Challenge – 2017 Favourites


2017 Favourites

MB was in the Grange Stone Circle at 6am this morning, on account of the fact that it was Winter Solstice Morning. And where else would any self-respecting inhabitant of HX-land want to be at such a time on such a date? Correct – The Grange Stone Circle.

Go only knows how many photos MB took this year in Russia, Lebanon, Qatar and Ireland. So he is not going to tax his brain or work his index finger to the bone by flicking back through them all to pick a ‘2017 favourite’. He will, instead, give just one shot to this week’s photo challenge from his visit to the stone circle this morning.

As followers would expect, MB took many awesome shots at the circle. Any one of a dozen or more of them could easily win a NatGeo photo competition or a Pulitzer, if MB could be bothered winning such piffling awards. But MB is bigger than mere awards and is just humbly happy to share his general awesomeness with faithful followers, free gratis, without compensation, or medals or pats on the back. However, he just might review that ridiculous position in 2018, if he could figure out how to milk his followers monetize his blog site. But that’s another matter. For another day.

MBs favourite photo from this morning (one of), caught a lucky split second one might think if one did not know MB so well. MB managed, by his sheer general awesomeness, to capture another photographer at the exact moment he fired his flash next to a candle that was burning in a small jar on the ground (thanks to friend MR, for that great candle!).

And there you have it lads. A brief history of one of the most awesome photos that any of you will see in 2017. Or 2018.

Will you send it to Nat Geo MB? No way lads. It would be completely wasted on them.

So happy Christmas to all. Thanks for all the crack in 2017. Have a great 2018.

  1. What a beautiful image, MB — it certainly is worthy of NatGeo, although I don’t think they could afford to pay you a fraction of what it’s worth. I hope the rest of your Winter Solstice was as beautiful as the morning suggests and wish you all the best as we turn the corner into another new year. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I must go put on my sheep’s costume so that I may be properly fleeced. Baaa! 🙂
