    Time to look back over your photographs from October and choose your single best shot (that means your favourite shot) of the month.

    This one from me - if you met the girl you would be focussed on her hands as much as her face - so I learned the lesson that a portrait doesn't have to mean a face

    Not the best, but I like the motion conveyed in the shot, and it reminds me of what has become a favourite location of mine, also the sight of pilot boat going out at speed signifies that a ship will soon be coming in.

    Airstream trailer in the high desert

    Among my many and varied October snaps, this is the one I keep coming back to. Take in the high desert of Central Oregon, next to a semi-arid lake (Summer Lake), near an eclectic hot springs - where the accomodations for hardy visitors include some venerable Airstream trailers.

    It also reminds me of why I like my tiny Lumix LX7 - it may not have the biggest sensor around, but the lens delivers.

    A difficult choice this time. After going back and forth I opted for this one. Oh no, this one (thanks Miguel!).

    Oh this is tough. Alright, I'll go with this one for personal impact.. wife and daughter, both mid-air, celebrating the completion of construction on a "princess castle" out of big wooden blocks:

    Personally, I would have chosen one of the two beach ones. I love the fourth - with its sepia tones and fluid out-of-focus qualities - but my favorite I think is the third, with the dark clouds, the silhouetted walkers and, most of all, those footprints.

    Now I thought I was indecisive!

    Anyhow, in the words of Highlander ... there can be only one.

    Or something like that!

    OK, Karen. I've listened and opted for Miguel's choice. ;-)
