Photo of the day

On this last day of the year, I’m going to link to a very handy post a while back from Kottke that links to a whole bunch of best-of-the-year photo sets.  The Wall Street Journal set he links to has lots of good ones.  They are sorted by rating, which is pretty cool.   This is their top-rated photo of the year.  And I love it, so it seems a good way to close out the year:
