I was recently talking to my friend, Maureen, about Best Photos of 2016. It’s an interesting topic and one worth taking pause to think about. We are fortunate and active enough to take quite a few trips per year, and with them lots of photos. So I have lots to choose from for a Best of collection. The hard part, if not impossible, is trying to pick which ones make the cut. Nonetheless, I think it is an important and relevant task that should be part of my annual objectives… pick your best of the year. It does two things, allows one to reflect on the year past… all the special moments, great experiences, and cool things we did… and identify my best photos.
So I decided to take on the task. Looking at my 2016 photos, I was delighted to see how many I really liked and that indeed I did come away with some great shots on the many awesome trips we took. In fact, I got so many I liked, I am able to break this blog into two .. and share my TOP 10 here… and another TOP Honorable Mentions on my sister blog, here.
So without further ado… here are my Best of 2016 (Top 10), in no particular order. What do you think?
1. Alstrom Point, Lake Powell
2. Mesa Arch, Canyonlands Utah
3. Mogollon Rim, Northern Arizona
4. Mogollon Rim, Northern Arizona
5. Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia
6. Olympic Peninsula, Washington State
7. Peter Iredale wreck, Ft Stevens Oregon
8. Leaf splash, Northern California
9. Lunenburg, Nova Scotia
10. Quinault Rain Forest, Washington
So that’s it.. my selected 2016 Top 10. To see the honorable mentions, check it out here.
The coolest part about this exercise, were the number and amount of great photos I left behind that I could have chosen. Love it when that happens.
So what do you think.. weigh in… what are your favorites?
