Lens Artists Photo Challenge #230 – Last Chance 2022

Tina’s challenge is to include some of our favorite images of 2022. We can include images on any and all subjects that are personal favorites – BUT, they must have been created in 2022 AND must not have been previously published in response to a Lens-Artists Challenge!

Going through this years photos brought back many happy memories. The header image is from my favorite event of the year. The weekend of our grandson’s high school graduation in May was a wonderful, emotional, and happy family time. We are proud grandparents!

January started out with a fabulous Caribbean cruise. This photo reminds me of the tropical places we visited.

In March we spent a fun weekend in Athens, Georgia for Henry’s college fraternity reunion. Spring flowers were blooming as we walked around old campus. There is a tradition at Georgia to ring the Chapel Bell all night when the Georgia Bulldogs win a football game. The bell has rung 13 times so far this season.

We made several trips to our favorite place in middle Georgia this year. This white tail fawn was one of many young deer we saw.

For the second year in a row I celebrated my birthday with lunch at Animal Kingdom Lodge at Disney World.

In August we cruised through Alaska and the inside passage. Here are two of my favorite wildlife images from the trip.

The waves were huge as we waited and watched to see where Hurricane Ian was going to land.
