Recommended Posts

As the winter has started and the year is about to end i feel it's time for a short recap of 2010.

 

The idea behind this topic would be to share some of your favorite pictures of 2010. These can be pictures taken by you or pictures you've seen on TPR.

Feel free to share the stories behind these and why they are so special.

 

Let's see how this goes, feel free to comment and post your suggestions/images.

 

 

Below are some of my favorites from the first half of the year (might add some more later on)

Let's start this trip through memory lane

For some reason, the way this photo was captured, it made things almost tilt-shift in feel.

Here's a few of my favorites. All of them are from CoasterMania and were taken with my iPhone 3G. The only editing I did was to resize them.

IMG_0408.JPG.f2fba75ed3b78bdfd7490b9258223092.JPG

Millennium Force's red train just as the sun came up.

IMG_0427.JPG.c59ae2b827f937ef4c6baa4b8dd2590b.JPG

I love how I captured the pure speed of Millennium Force during its morning test runs.

IMG_0443.JPG.823275bd035ffcd841ab6df8704ceb62.JPG

Sunrise + Millennium Force + The Moon = Pure Roller Coaster Beauty

IMG_0466.JPG.dda0a6b12975448d0b398c26f0795175.JPG

I still don't understand how this shot came out so well, but I love it still.

IMG_0467.JPG.2b49c3e5ded41cc8bd63af84e9da418a.JPG

My absolute favorite of all. From this angle, these two coasters are so beautiful.

Wow it's really hard to narrow this down, but here's a few of my favorites of this year.

7_55.jpg.e683b1bf5ed6d48485ddd9f6d248e837.jpg

My vote for favorite little wooden coaster goes to....

11_73.jpg.e67bc7ab1ea5b3d65fc2757fac650587.jpg

But my favorite at Mt. Olympus is Hades.

12_68.jpg.672c4ed34222dc4c018a839dae6b7f24.jpg

After shooting this late summer it was my desk top picture for the last couple months.

14_245.jpg.af8ca7974c62a1313528bce8addfaf59.jpg

Okay I'm cheating here. This is only slightly amusement park related. I shot it at a Ren Fest that I visited in the middle of a multi day amusement park trip, but possibly my favorite picture of 2010.

15_92.jpg.5563a27203d4624fcdc570417fd27c18.jpg

Coaster shots are nice, but if I can capture kids having fun at parks those are the pictures that I consider priceless.

21_24.jpg.fcfe7eb78cb3b9ff9e2fb9216ba00a30.jpg

Love this framed shot through the trees.

28_46.jpg.da8498f02f4b74bfe411a830f7f4bad9.jpg

Griffin your the star of one of my favorite pictures of the year. This to me was my favorite picture of one of my favorite days of 2010. TPR day at SFGA was absolutely a blast.

43_38.jpg.819d6baa2fd039fb9e743e3d837c8d58.jpg

My favorite picture from Darien Lake.

dsc_0186_6.jpg.9a4fd47f3d3379f1046e652eb23171b1.jpg

My favorite Cedar Point Halloweekend picture from this year.

dsc_0218_2.jpg.979bbf1045a4f059fcd8d5617d63eacb.jpg

One of my very first attempts at panning. I like the way this turned out though.

dsc_0461_2.jpg.832dd8567f17eace673d8be9c95b8ff0.jpg

Love Kings Island's nightly firework display. Something about the fountains, fireworks, and tower all working together visually.

dsc_0720_3.jpg.c522203c89189b50ec4433c7583e4c88.jpg

I doubled my coaster count this year but Voyage still stands as my number one. I think I also have more pictures of Voyage than any other coaster.

dscf2706.jpg.9c7fe4aa99f63504c38ae3fe59c238ce.jpg

These kids were already posing for their parents. I took this with their parents permission and it is easily one of my favorites of the year.

saginawhxc, Thank you for reminding me just what a beautiful place Kings Island can be when looked at the right way at the right time. Being my home park since birth I often forget when visiting to just LOOK at where I am at and how I just take living so close to such a nice park for granted.

This is not a picture from this year, but while looking thru my pictures, I found this. Thought you may like this. While building dragster, a worker decided against walking all the way to the restrooms.

These are some awesome pictures so far, but i'm pretty sure there are more people out there with memorable images from 2010.

 

Just think about all the "nasty" images from "The Ray's"..

 

The more the better

The only park I got to this year was Kings Dominion for East Coast Bash. But it was a day I will never forget. Oh, and I am not a very good photographer.
