Another year comes to a close. It's only natural to look back at my photographic efforts of the last twelve months. My focus here will be on my successes. Those rare instances when I get it right - in my opinion, of course. This past year was a busy one with lots of travel.

The criteria for selection is simple, it has to be one of my favorites. Picking a personal favorite can happen a number of ways, a fond memory of the excursion or location.

These are a popular destinations for tourists and locals alike....Read more

The beaches are mostly north and west facing making them good spots for late day/sunset photos. The park...Read more

This photo was taken along what would eventually be the cyclist route for the day however, I was there just after sunrise, the cyclists were there a few hours later. This sunrise was uneventful meaning the sky was devoid of any dramatic...Read more
July concluded with a four day trip to Vermont. The main purpose was to photograph cyclists as they navigated the Vermont countryside and benefiting a good cause at the same time. Great Freedom Adventures was the tour company (GFA) and Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) is the cause. The Cyclists spent three days exploring the sights, sounds, tastes that make Vermont a special place for outdoor activities. My job was to record all that and help them raise funds for a good cause....Read more
