In the process of selecting my "Photo of the Year 2015" I discovered two things. One, there were many fine photos that I never posted; paging through my blog reminded me of many of them. Two, I have almost 60 that I did post that I marked to consider for this honor so I have to eliminate some of them just to narrow the field. So I am disqualifying these because they were not taken in my region, the Shenandoah Valley and surrounding mountains.

I like the final photo too but I didn't take it; a robot did. Actually it's from a motion-activated trail camera. This was one of two times the camera caught the bear in our back yard. I think the bright spot is caused by the focusing beam that the camera sends out.
Well, 2015 is almost over. I hope that the new year is kind to you and peaceful for all.
