Before the new year starts, I thought it would be fun to look back on some of the most viewed and most “liked” posts on this blog. I may also throw in a couple of my personal favorites that may have not received that much attention their first time out. For some of these Year in Review stories, I may add other photos or additional notes that have similar subject matter but did not run in the particular post the first time out. I will also provide a link to the original version.
(please click to see more photos and text)
For those of you who missed these posts the first time out, I hope you will enjoy them. For those long timers I hope you will enjoy taking a second look. Over the next week or so I will also be running new posts as warranted so please keep an eye on the ISBAA dailies.
I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has made this blog a success.

Every October I usually get up to the Deep Creek Lake Area for the Autumn Glory festival. Sometimes the leaves cooperate and turn during the festival though lately its seem to be happening a week or so before schedule. On a good year, the colors are amazing.
I shot the photo above early one October morning while on a drive around the lake. I practically slammed on my brakes to park when I saw this scene as it was something I did not want to miss.
To me, this picture says fall and reminds me of everything beautiful about that time of year. You can see a little sliver of the lake at far left but the leaves are the star of this show.
I really liked the way these orange leaves appeared to frame the church top.
The photo below was taken along Deep Creek Lake very late one fall afternoon.
