I’m waving 2012 goodbye with this beautiful San Diego sunset photo I took on Christmas evening.

I’m greeting 2013 with this beautiful San Diego winter sunrise that I selected for the month of January in my 2013 photo calendar (for sale on Zazzle).

Let’s hope the year 2013 features even more beautiful San Diego sunsets like this one:

and inspiring sunrises like this one:

It’s been taking me a very long time to go through my thousands of photos to pick the ones to display on this blog, and eventually put up for sale in the appropriate formats and media on Zazzle. It’s one of those things I really want to get done but the task seems so overwhelming, I tend to put it aside almost every day. Very counterproductive.

That’s until a friend of mine, who obviously has more commonsense than me, suggested I start it all with a 2013 photo calendar, displaying some of my favorite/best pictures. The lightbulb flashed over my head as soon as she mentioned it and since then, I’ve been picking, editing and asking people to choose the right photos for each month. All photos were taken in Southern California and portray what nature looks like around here at different times of the year.

I’ve decided to showcase my photo choices for each month on this photo blog, while I’m putting the 2013 calendar together for sale. I’d love to hear what you think about them, so please feel free to comment.

Today, I’ll start with January 2013. This is a sunrise photo I took last January of a winter sunrise. The sky colors were just beautiful on that morning. I’d love to see a sunrise like this one every single day!
