My Favorite/Best Photographs of 2011

Whishing all of you a Happy and Prosperous 2012.

I skipped posting this series in 2010, however you can find it here: flickr for my Best of 2010.


I was inspired in 2009 when Dan Mitchell and Jim Goldstein, posted their best of the year images. I got out quite a few times in 2011 and had a difficult time picking what I thought are my best/favorites. If I stuck with my favorites there would be a whole bunch more (and I may just add them later).


You can also view this photo set on flickr for my best of 2011, not necessarily the “BEST”, but images making it into the set were selected as follows:


  • I got positive feedback on them.

  • Memories or circumstances in which it was made and where I was when the image was taken.

  • Just because I like it.

Merry Christmas Greeting

This December there were no trips to catch the snow in Yosemite, so I thought I post something from a snowy day in February. Merry Christmas and a Peaceful New Year.
