Escargot Anyone? - 3/52

The underside of a snail in our reef tank.  Kinda weird, eh?

And while I had the macro extension tubes out, I also got a closeup of the Hammer Coral.

Hammer Coral - 2/52

About a month ago Jason set up a 75 gallon reef tank after taking about a 6 year hiatus from saltwater.  It's pretty bare right now with first getting it set up, but will be beautiful in about 6 months or so.  For now I've gotten some close-up shots of some of the corals and fish currently in the tank.

The Hammer Coral is the photo I used for my Project 52 for this week. You can probably expect to see quite a few reef photos during this project as the tank grows!

First Snow Dusting - 1/52

First dusting of snow of 2012!

First Snow of 2012 - 1/52

I'm biting the bullet again and starting 2012 off with another photo project.  This one is Project 52 again (one photo a week for one year), which I got half way through last year with an animals and nature theme.  This year I'm not sticking to any one theme as I think that helps me complete the project a little easier.  I'm also allowing phone photos in this project since I have a half way decent camera on my phone now, particularly for outdoor photos.

I'm ready for this year. I've been waiting for this year just to put 2011 behind me.  And now it's here.  I'm ready!
