Last summer, our family took its first trip to Walt Disney World in Florida, culminating in a relaxing few days at Fernandina Beach. With our new digital camera, I took this photo of my daughter at sunset.

Jeanne Lay Columbia The Sun welcomes submissions for "My Best Shot." Photos should be accompanied by a description of when and where you took the picture and your name, address and phone number.
