Here are a couple more I thought I would share;

the first is a maldivian sunset;

This next one is a rather fortunate shooting star shot. I was mucking about with the camera balanced precariously over the water with the lens held up with a cork! I'm glad I hadnt had too much wine or I would have probably knocked it in the sea. Not a fantastic shot but just goes to show what a bit of luck can do.

And finally - I keep going back to this one. I know its been done before but I just love the way you can almost feel the texture of the skin.

This is a great idea James - I usually don't bother to trawl through the archives very often and this has been a reminder of how lucky I have been this year.
