My Favorite Photos of 2017

Every year, I like to take a look back at the year of shooting and select my favorite photos of the year. 2017 was definitely a down year for me as far as volume of output is concerned, as I had very little time to shoot this year (and even less time to write).  However, I was quite pleased with the quality of images I did manage to capture this year. I am sorry that haven’t been able to give what I’d like to the site this year, and I’m hoping I can ramp back up in 2018.

In any case, here’s a selection of the 20 photos of mine that I liked most this year.  Happy shooting, and have a wonderful 2018!
