Each year superb landscape photographer Jim M. Goldstein invites readers of his blog to take part in his best photos of the year project. As you might have guessed from the name this project involves readers of his blog choosing their ten best photographs from the previous year. I decided that this year I should take part too.
I found it incredibly difficult to pick just ten photos from the previous year as all of the photographs I have taken mean something special to me, but ten is the limit so in the end it was just a case of being brutal and making the tough choices.
The photos I have chosen are in the gallery below (in no particular order) and each one links through to a corresponding Flickr page. I am not going to provide descriptions for each of the photographs as I think that photographs should really stand up on their own without requiring descriptions. That said, it is often interesting to know more about a photograph’s location information and technical data so all of that information is available via the individual Flickr pages if you are particularly interested in that stuff.
So after much deliberation here are my top ten choices from the year 2011.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my best of 2011 and I’m very much looking forward to seeing all of the work from the photographers involved in the project.
Wishing you the very best for 2012.
