My 5 favorite photos from 2012! This process has been hugely educational for me, and as you’ll see below, I even discovered an overlooked gem. Enjoy!
John Oliver Cabin
This John Oliver star trail image is really the one that got me hooked. When this shot finally came together (after 4 or so tries) I can’t tell you how excited I was, and the reaction I got from everyone on it, sealed the deal. I’ve since remastered it a few times (you can see the original here) and this one here is the most recent version. It continues to be one of my favorite images, and definitely a top image for 2012.
Cades Cove Black Bear
I absolutely love black bears, but I rarely get a chance to photograph them. Sometimes though, everything comes together and a black bear just happens to wonder out in front of you! This was definitely a highlight from the year! The original post is here
Stay a Little Longer
This was definitely an educational moment for me this year (see the original post here) and it turned into one of my favorite shots of the year! I love the light on the mountains and this is the image that got me excited about black and white again!
An Evening in Prague
I’ve messed around with this image a bit since I originally posted it (see that version here) but it has remained one of my favorite images. Prague is just such an iconic and picturesque city, it’s hard to take a bad photo there!
Berlin Before the Storm
This image is actually the product of going back through all my images to create my favorite photos collections. I somehow overlooked it and it never made it to Picture of the Week, but I REALLY like this image! The sky looks scary and the scene has come classic German architecture in it.
