It is the end of another year. It is bitter cold in Iowa as I write this post and choose my favorite images of 2016. A good day to stay inside and reflect on the year through my photography. This year is such a diverse set of images, interesting how my photography changed this year. So many of my images this year were spur of the moment and unplanned. The images this year were made using three cameras, my Nikon P7000, Nikon D7000 and my iPhone 6s. The images made with my DSLR Nikon D7000, were made with only two lenses, my 50mm 1.8D and my 105mm macro lens.
I took a look back at previous years to see my favorite images from 2013, 2014 and 2015. How different they are from this year. I cringed when looking at my images from 2013 as it seemed I was trying too hard and concerned with making images that would please others. It was all about macro photography and finding my style and path in 2014. And 2015 was a gallery of images from Arizona and Iowa and I see the personal struggle in my images of trying to figure out where I should be.
And here we are at the end of 2016 and the images I chose as my favorites. Several of the images were not shared in previous posts. You may click on any of the images below to view a larger size.
