Last Photo Challenge- Best of the best

So here we are, the last The Daily Post Photo Challenge. It’s been a good run. I started the challenge in January 2014. Here are my All-time favourite photos.

This was my first ever photo I posted for the challenge. It might not be my best work but it was memorable. It’s morning in Stockholm and it was my mother last cruise. She passed away in 2013.

This photo was my most popular. Actually, most popular ever on this blog. It’s taken with a macro lens. It’s a sunflower.

sunflowerLast but not least. My favourite. It’s a ski trip in Lapland. It was a time when cancer wasn’t even close to our family. I like it because I manage to catch movement which is not the easiest to photograph.

gone but not forgottenSo there you have it. Such a shame The Daily Post decided to end this great photo challenge. Among others. So thank you again.

WPC: Between Extra

Last week’s Extra combined with this week’s Between.

Last week I thought about what I should post but I didn’t really know what. I went to a cruise on Midsommer Eve to Stockholm, Sweden (came home this morning, June 21) I was on deck with my camera when I saw upon a cliff, these department buildings with a smaller department in between. The cruising ship was getting closer to the harbour so there were a lot of common gulls flying around. And then one of them just happened to fly by just as I was taking a picture.

I thought, there it was, Extra!. Today I saw this week’s challenge. And Bingo!
So I killed two birds with one stone, so to speak 😀

(no birds were hurt in this photo challenge)
