|Probably my favorite shot from last year. There is just so much to see here, all the little vignettes playing out on the beach, and the gull and the wildflowers and the shoreline way in the background. A gray, cool day and yet there's bright color. It doesn't have spectacular light or movement ... but this is the image that speaks to me.
