:D Well, thank you hills! You did a great job organizing this whole thing. Thanks also to all the folks submitting entries and all the voters. That was a lot of fun and I look forward to more contests.

I took this photo a couple of years ago in November, but it is more or less unchanged since. The place is here in south central Georgia on the road to my home and farm. My home is not visible in the photo but is on the left at that second rise in the road in the pic. As soon as I saw the category was "close to home" I knew what my entry would be. The only problem was choosing which one of the many I have taken of that stretch of road!

Congrats, ga.prime! What a beautiful photo; it looks like a very nice spot to ride a horse on, just mosey along and daydream, anytime of year.

If this New Years is like last years it will just be me and the 4 legged family members again . So no romantic candle light dinner here ,unless the power goes out .
