2010 Photo of the Year

Voting for Photo of the Year ended in a tie. Since this is my site, I get to pick a winner between the two.

The photo I selected may not seem that strange to people who live in an area that gets a lot of snow every year. But in Terrell we do not expect to wake up and see over a foot of snow on the ground. Because of that, this was chosen as the Picture of the Year. The photo was taken on the morning of February 12, 2010.


Below is the photo that tied for the most votes. It was taken during the Caveman Crawl off road race in Bridgeport, TX.

I look forward to snapping pictures all over Texas in 2011, including more sports and action shots. As always, check the Terrell Daily Photo Facebook page for more photos, and pictures of the 2010 Photo of the Year finalists.

Only 28.5 miles ran last month. This month gets started quick, running the I am Superman 5K in Rockwall. After the race, hopefully a fun photo opportunity.

Thanks for the explanation about the snow. I hadn't thought about that! My vote went for the Caveman Crawl -- I just love it. Hope you have a great start to the New Year!

We've had a lot of unexpected snow this year too - I thought Texas was bathed in year round sunshine (shoeing my ignorance and stereotyping!). Anyway have enjoyed your photos, have a great 2011

You got that much snow in Texas! Wow! I can see why the photo is a fan favorite.

Great choice, Jim!

«Louis» remembers one snowstorm in Lubbock that filled the high-fenced back yard with so much snow that we could walk out the back door and up onto the roof!

Great choice, Jim. Hope the race went very well for you and for Brian. I look forward to spending many moments of 2011 with my two favorite Texans!

both pics are photo of the year worthy, but the snow photo won me over with the local Buford Drugs sign. Maybe in 2011 they'll restore the neon on it!

Both great shots. I do like the snow one though. Very weird to wake up to a pile of snow like that. MB


Happy New Year too.
