About Project 365

Thanks for stopping by my blog! This is Year 2 of my Project365 blog. What is a Project 365? It's a photo challenge involving people from all over the world posting one photo per day throughout 2011. Some photographers choose themes, however for now my photos will be totally random. I will be shooting with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi-18-55mm, 75-300mm zoom and 100mm 2.8 macro lenses. I edit in iPhoto and Photoshop Elements 9. Not all photos are "perfect"; the purpose is to make photography an everyday event.

I am not a professional. Photography has always been a diversion of mine. I am a primary grade teacher and passionate tech. enthusiast. I consider myself an experienced amateur with LOTS to learn!

You will find links to other photographers in the sidebar- do check them out! I have also joined the Flickr EdTech 365/2011 Group, and you can click this link to view the entire pool. I will be posting my photos to their group pool, as well as here on my photo blog. I welcome your constructive criticism!


1. Photos are to be taken in 2011.
2. Post your own work only.
3. Images may be edited or unedited- your choice.
4. Keep your images, text, and comments appropriate for all ages.

Lake Sunset

Okay, so this is slightly "cheating". Unfortunately, of all the photos I took last night and today at the lake, these two were my favorites, and (technically) taken last night. Couldn't resist the at- and after-sunset shades in the sky. This place is and always will be my "happy place"!


  1. Beautiful silhouette sunset pics. Definitely worth 'cheating'. I like the sun rays coming out from behind the hills in the first shot. Well done.

  2. I would call it not cheating but stretching! There are lots of time zones ;-) These are fantastic.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous shots! You are lucky to live near such a happy place.

  4. Wonderful sky! I can see why this is your happy place...
