Looking Back… Favorites of 2012

My roundup of 2012 was a fun challenge. Driving across country twice this year and hitting seven national parks provided a massive amount of subject matter. My favorites list, however, encompasses a diversity of subjects ranging from landscapes to portraits and urban scenes. 

A photograph is a favorite for various reasons. For me, these shots evoke a warm memory, a special time shared with someone, a moment of tranquil beauty or an interesting composition that sparked my creativity.

Thanks again for taking the time to view my photography and for your support over this past year.

Happy New Year and all the best to you in 2013!
