    So many to choose from. Have to go with Downieville, Second Divide in September because the action it conveys is Downieville.

    Buffehr Trail

    in Vail Colorado, June-ish. I found it while making calendars using pictures from a group blog, and decided it was time to change up the avatar. Oh, and I didn't take it, but it's one of the best pictures of me from this year.

    Gooseberry Mesa UT, Halloween weekend.



    I dunno if it's my fave pic, but it was the best thing I saw while biking all year, except maybe the parking lot after the hardest ride I've ever been on New Year's Eve while it was raining

    A longish story, but bears telling here since I see so many great pictures on this site.

    I'm part of a group <a href="http://www.bdiddys.blogspot.com">blog</a> of old buddies from just post-college, xc racing days in Nebraska. We're spread out a bit now and use it to keep in touch, smack talk, etc. We've posted a ton of pictures and storys this year, someone mentioned that we should make a calendar, and I somehow took the helm, dug through the blog, gathered the pictures, and placed and order for 17 calendars from Costco to be delivered via FedEx the day most of us were together for a party back in NE.

    Day of the party, I'm checking my email, and Costco tells their sob story: Machinery broke down, lots of orders, sorry your order won't likely make it pre-xmas. But, since it's our fault, if you don't get them pre-Xmas they're free. Not just the shipping, but the entire order!

    Xmas comes and goes, and a few days later the package makes it to my buddy's house, all the charges were refunded to my credit card, and Tuesday, via Nebraska, my calendar makes it to Nebraska. So... Costco Photo's customer service rocks. We've got no extras, but Redstone should have one up by this weekend for you to check out. If you think it's worthy, we could get you hooked up.

    The pic quality my not compare with most on here, but...

    I actually managed to shoot this this photo of myself using the timer on my camera and a twig tripod. It's on a section of trail up behind my house outside of Denver (the CO Trail) - on a day when I was playing hookey, which makes the picture that much better in my opinion.

    so tough to choose

    tough to choose for sure. for some reason i keep going back to these. pic number one is from oahu, hawaii in january 05'. this was from a 2 week trip that i took to hawaii with jen, shonny vanlandingham, mary hearn and elke brutsaert. despite having brought our mtn bikes over, we did not do a huge amount of off road riding, mostly as shonny was busy doing her base mile training on her road bike, and we would try our best to keep up until the temptation of drinking mai tais on the beach became too great and we would ditch off the pavement. this shot was from one of our few dirt rides, where a few minutes into the ride the ominous looking clouds that had been hovering overhead let loose with the rain they were threatening. this shot to me reminds me of the dark, dense foliage covering the trail, and the dreary day that we encountered while riding. the rider is elke brutsaert.

    the second shot was from spring time 05'. the cave that i was shooting from made a great frame for the perfect blue sky in the background and i shot many many pics of matt just barely in the frame, or already over the cave before i got this one.

    Here are two of my favourites. I am a newb, but have the bug bad.
    The first is my nephew. It is his first or second ride ever, but he used to motocross and it shows. This is at a trail called Three Rocks in the Glen Major Forest north of Ajax Ontario, Canada. Another friend of mine shot it and i think it is a great shot for a pocket digital camera.
    The second shot is from New Years day and i just like it for some reason. Very peaceful. It is from just up the rode from teh previous shot at Durham Forest.

    I didn't take too many good photos in '05. Hey, there's another NY resolution for me.

    I kinda like the uniqueness of this one, though.

    Bdiddy got me my calendar yesterday -- nice work Debaser!! I was pretty surprised at your choice of photos for the December image. That's one of my 2005 favorites!

    Thanks for pulling those together buddy. My calendar is hanging right behind my workbench in the bike room -- it'll get viewed often. Even though they ended up being free, we all still owe you a big one for putting it together. :-}

    Cheers,
    MG

    I have the same resolution, but here is a bike pic from the summer of 05 in the Latham Poop Loop. It is not the greatest pic, but the only one I have. The next one is a freeze frame of me falling on a helmit cam video.

    I didn't get a chance to ride much this year due to a fustercluck move. On my last ride at the Wessestein I took some pictures to remember a local ride. I've seen this view hundreds of times.

    Cool idea. Now that I'm displaced from my old stomping grounds, I may have to steal that idea and start something like that of my own.

    The view of the Pacific Ocean and Skyline facing NW from the top of Black Mountain, about a mile from the top of Montebello Road in Cupertino (Los Altos?). Taken in January or February and still my favorite shot, it constantly serves as my desktop background when I'm not stealing everyone else's beautiful shots from MTBR posts.
