Calendar 2010: January

In January 2009, I took my first hesitating steps into the Blogworld by starting my first blog The Island of the Voices. I really had no concept at all back then of how much time I would end up spending in this world during the rest of the year - how many places I would get to see without actually visting them, or how many new friends I would be making all over the globe!

I also did not foresee how my own interest in photography would suddenly explode as a consequence. From July on, when I also joined the shared photo blog Soaring Through the World in Pictures, I found myself taking as many photos in one month as previously in one year - something of that proportion... This, in turn, led on to also starting my DawnTreader's Picture Book in September.

For Christmas, I had a wall calendar for 2010 made out of 12 chosen photos from the past year, to give to some family members and friends. I thought I'd start 2010 off on this blog by publishing the same 12 pictures here. It will be looking back at last year; and looking forward to the seasons of the coming year as well.

If you're thinking you've seen the January picture before, quite recently - that's right! It is a sunrise picture from early December, published on this blog 5 December. I chose it for January because it seemed fitting to start the calendar for the new year with a wintry picture taken at dawn...

The title of my very first blogpost at The Island of the Voices was
 "The Dawn of a New Year and a New Blog"

I smiled as I read your blog today, I had just checked to see when i found the wonderful world of bloggin. August 28, 09. Only 4 months and I am totally hooked on these blogs. 2 to 4 hours will pass as I create, read and comment on blogs. I could do it all day if I allowed myself. I try to limit my time on the blogs and I think I may have an addiction now. Here's to blogging in 2010. I love your photo for today and am waiting to see the other 11

Glad you're part of the blogosphere! I read your very first post on IOTV and was struck with how appropriate it was. Best wishes for a wonderful year!

Blogging is amazing. Not only do you see the outside world in different ways, but you see the world around you differently as well. I am more aware of my climate, environment, and inner thoughts as a result of a year and a half-ish of blogging. It's a Wonderful World! (Glad ours overlap.)

Happy New Year!

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
