2017: A Photographic Retrospective

December 31, 2017  •  3 Comments

It really is hard to believe 2017 is behind us already.  It seems like I was just publishing this same blog post, but for my 2016 images.  Time marches on, as reluctantly as I want it to sometimes, and now it’s about to be 2018.  As I look back on 2017, from a photographic perspective, it has been a year filled with many great outings, new places to photograph, some new lenses, a drowned camera, and a continual pursuit to push my skills.  For those following my photography, thank you for the “likes” on social media and your encouragement and support.  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you all.  Thank you.  Looking forward to 2018, I hope you all have a year filled with new and exciting adventures, unforgettable memories, and great stories. 

This is the 4th year I’ve published a retrospective of my photography for the year.  Unlike last year, I won’t choose an image for each month.  Instead, I’m going to just highlight my favorite images from the last 365 days.  Without further ado...

Outstanding retrospective! Looking forward to another year of your photographs, Justin. Loved seeing the moose, again.

As I began reading this post, I was going to pick out my favorite and tell you which one it was. I couldn’t. They are all beautiful. I am particularly impressed with the Garden of the Gods photos because it is one of my favorite places. I also especially like the ice crystal and the moose. Thank you for sharing your skills.
