Through The Lens, My Favorite 12 From 2012.

What a year! 

2012 has been an unbelievable year. I’ve created more commissioned work for others, and more of my work is finding its way onto people’s walls. I also feel I’m continuing to learn and grow as a photographer. I’d like to share with you my favorite 12 images from the past year.

(For this weeks Weekly Photo Challenge theme: Surprise. The “surprise?” I can’t count, my favorite 12 of 2012 is actually 20! Enjoy!)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary

SOL-I-TARY: 

1) taken, passed, or performed without companions.

2) occurring singly and not as part of a group or cluster.

Often, but not always, my best work is created while I’m alone. While I enjoy the company of others, I find that solitude is much more beneficial to my creative process. I’m not saying these images represent my best work, but to me they do represent “solitary.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sun

The Sun,

Life depends on it. As a photographer, I live to chase it. Without its golden glow, photography as we know it would be lacking.

With it, the flowers grow.

        

Not there, and yet, there.

Even when not within the frame of the image, the suns presence and impact is both seen and felt, adding drama to the landscape.

For the birds.

Even wildlife seems to eagerly await the dawn of each new day.

The end is near.

The sun sets, and the anticipation of its arrival the next morning begins.
