Voted On The Island

Niagara Falls Ferris Wheel

Because I shoot a lot of photos over the course of year (2011, it was around 30,000), I created a gallery on my various social outlets where I post photos that don’t make it to the blog. What else am I supposed to do with all those image? This photo was really well received by the kind folks that follow us over on Facebook, so I decided I better share it with everyone. The people spoke, and it was voted on the island (errrr…blog). If you’re curious, this is the ferris wheel overlooking Niagara Falls.

  1. Wow, 30,000 images – that’s a lot Justin. I did half of that last year. I’ll have to get out more ;-o

    Nice image.

  2. That’s an awesome amount of images Justin! I like your idea of putting out photos around your social media outlets. Nice shot, I like the ferris wheel peeking over the trees. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Ah… love it! I’ve got you as a contact on flickr, Justin but I hardly ever see your images there. You still posting to flickr? And, BTW thanks for the great comments on my blog. Much appreciated.

  4. Huh? Wait. There is a wheel overlooking the falls? Did you happen to get any shots of the falls FROM the wheel? :)

    And dang, 30k images?

  5. Dang, dude that’s a lot of images. Good think they weren’t all with your D700 though it might be a good excuse to have to get the D800 :-) Now you have me curious to see how many images I shot last year.

    BTW, that’s some wicked sky there!

Leave a comment, I would love to hear from you
