As I mentioned in a post from earlier this year, I got started with the camera ten years ago. In that time, I've taken a lot of photos. A lot of photos. And thoroughly enjoyed myself in the process. I'm guessing that's part of why I took a bit of a break this year. And while I do expect the pace to be a little slow moving forward, I'm by no means done. In fact, I have some pretty big plans and I hope to unleash some of them in the coming year. Meanwhile, check out this shot from a customary December visit to my favorite Southern California beach.
