January theme day: Photo of the Year


Since I spent most of 2013 in Toronto, it only seems fair to choose a favorite shot from that city. This was a special winter shot from Niagara Falls taken in January 2013. Hope 2014 brings you continued good health, love and joy! For more photos of the year from around the world, click here.

Oh wow, does it get any better than this?
The rainbow, blue sky and white trees are just spectacular and I like that you've included people in your shot. It makes for a very lively atmosphere and I can't help but think that all the people who were there were very lucky to experience this.
Happy year 2014 to you!

And yes I agree with you, word verification is a nightmare. Thanks for not using it :)

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
