Best Photos of 2018

 
It was supposed to be ten photos. I didn't think I'd taken very many good ones this year, but I had to be rather brutal to get it down to eleven. So here you go... chronological order.


Just a winter landscape out back.

Lake Michigan beach in winter.

stripes of blue and white water and snow

This mourning dove picture is probably the weakest... it's just a bird picture, but it's so hard to catch them anywhere except on a wire, I really like it.

This is along the North Country and Buckeye Trails near Hocking Hills in Ohio. This one was good enough to be on the cover of North Star

Here's a white egret I snapped in Alabama. I like the way it works with the sky.

Anyone could have taken this picture at Dow Gardens. It's a gorgeous place. But I still think it's good.

Still trying for a really good water pattern. This one is spoiled by the ripple, but not awful.

Ludington beach sunset. Triter than trite, but still beautiful.

autumn trail

Along the rail trail portion of the Midland to Mackinac Trail.

autumn barn

along the North Country Trail. It just calls me into the picture.

Which one(s) do you like best?

In other news: I seem to be using the shotgun approach to my work list. I wrote, I worked on tax accounts, I went to the library, I paid a bill.

My favorites are the sunset, water ripples and autumn roadway, numbers 7, 8 and 9.

Each and every one of these photos is well deserving of your top 10 list

It is hard to choose one favorite, but water patterns is, for me, the winner.
