Pictures of the Week – 12 – 30 – 12

This is the fourth weekly round-up of some really nice photography from various facebook and other glass web sites that have caught my eye.  Of course this is subjective, but it is fun to see the composition, lighting and topic matter of each picture.

Make sure you visit the Fresh Peach Gallery which represents the best of the best pictures from 2012.
