Another year in the tin! I've created a new gallery of my 12 favorite images from the many I made in 2012 (also shown below). As you might expect, ten of the twelve are from the Northwoods of Wisconsin and Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
Several factors come into play when I make my “favorite images” selections. Some I enjoy for aesthetic reasons, some evoke fond memories of the location, and some remind me of the stories behind their making. Although many photographers select their top 10 shots of the year, I thought “12 for '12” seemed appropriate.
My preferences do change as time passes, but at least for now, “Autumn Aspen pano 3470-2” is my favorite image of 2012.
Which are your favorites, and why? Please let me know in the comments below!
