Summer Blog Challenge - Day 15

Todays Challenge: Post a photo you took that you're proud of

I am NOT a good photographer at all, but there are two photos I have taken that I am proud of.

This picture of my niece Amelie is one I love because its something she'll always be able to look back on to remember her 2nd birthday - I snapped a series of shots of her playing with this balloon, and they're all adorable. I was proud of myself for thinking it up on the spot! :)

This is a photo I took while on my cruise in February this year, we were sailing through the Bay Of Biscay and the water was choppy and looked so dark it almost didn't look real. It looked like velvet. The way the sun was shining through the clouds just really struck me as beautiful, and I was thrilled that I managed to capture it all in this shot.

Its not too late to join in this challenge! Just go to Going Green With The Grizls and sign up :)
