2009 was the year of windows of opportunity and i think you seized all the right ones. but LJ certainly got a lot more boring when left to have a life. :)

The water shots were with using a tripod and a ND-filter.

The sun flare is from the fish-eye lens which produces a beautiful flare. All shots are a single exposure.

Amazing snaps! I specially liked "Clouds Rest", its a superb combination of golden sunlight and dreamy clouds....
