January 1, 2007 - the Best Photo of the Year
The Daily Photo community chooses a theme for the first day of each month - naturally, for the first day of the year, we chose to post our Best Photo of 2006. I've been counting down my favorites all week (see below) and have asked others for their choices as well. This is my final decision (though if you asked me yesterday or tomorrow I might pick something else!)
Here's a link to some of the top runners-up.
And now, please take some time to travel the world and see the most surprising, beautiful, enlightening pictures you could ever hope to see, from DP'ers from Ausralia, where it's been New Year's for hours already, to Hawai'i, where it won't be New Year's for many hours to come, and every continent in between! (Almost - I don't think we have a DP'er in Antarctica yet!)
