Best Shot Monday

Some of the photography blogs that I visit have a best shot Monday post every week.  I thought it would be fun to do this, and it would get me to take my cammera with me more often. 

This shot I risked my life for.  I was challenged to capture a sunflare, on a photography forum that I belong to. Im pretty short, so I needed something to stand on to get this shot I had envisioned in my head.  I grabbed a small table that we keep out side for the kids to eat on when we have a “picnic”.  I got up on it, took a few shots, and as I was getting off the table broke underneath me.  I fell, hit my head, got a couple of bruises on my arms, but the scariest thing was that I landed on my cammera.  THANK GOD nothing happened to it.  I’m alright too.  My husband asked me why I didn’t stand on the ladder, which was right next to the table.  I told him that I needed to use the table so that I would have an interesting story to go along with the picture.  Im such a dork.
