My Ten Best of Images of 2017

This year I visted places in the US that I had wanted to go for a long time including Savannah, the Everglades & Crater Lake. Of all the locations I photographed, the one I'd most like to return to is Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah. Bonaventure is one of those rare visually magic places.

I cannot help but compare each year to my prior years but it is difficult for me separate photographic merit from my feelings about the locations. We are also all biased judges of our own work. Looking back at 2016 and 2015, I realzied I miss the amazing Rocky Mountains. I enjoyed my short trip to the Sierras this year but if I've left my heart anywhere, it's in the Rockies.
