Since I take off to Antarctica in the morning, I’m pretty sure this will be my last post for the next 3 weeks as I’ll have very limited internet.
This has become somewhat of an annual deal thanks in part to my friend Jim Goldstein.
So here are my top 10 and why. Click on thumbnail for a larger view.
Full moon with whale
Spending 3 days by myself in a rental boat in Fredrick Sound battling bad weather and even hitting a rock made this amazing moment even more special!
Bear with Cubs
These three cute cubs standing next to their mom came from one of my bear photo tours. This was my biggest “viral” success – on Goggle + it hit the 500 comment limit in just hours and was shared and given a plus 1 by thousands – guessing that strange language only means something to a few people, but in short, it was well liked.
Aurora over Seward
This rare event turned out to be one of our best selling prints this year even though we have only had this image for a few months.
Anza-Borrego Dry Lake
We have been visiting Anza-Borrego Desert State Park for years and usually an image from here makes the top 10. Hard to get a pretty picture that also illustrates concepts like drought.
Pedersen Lagoon Canoes
According to the Travel Channel (and I agree) Aialik Bay in Kenai Fjords National Park is one of the top 10 amazing places in the world! I’m lucky to live so close to such an amazing place. Pedersen Lagoon feeds into Aialik Bay.
I do a fair amount of travel photography, and spent a bit of time in Las Vegas, so it is only fitting that such a subject would find its way into the top 10. This is the pool of the Cosmopolitan reflecting in a nearby building.
I never thought my daily walk to the Post Office would lead to an image on my top 10 list, but this one has grown on me.
Mat Su Valley Autumn
One from a wonderful trip to the Mat Su Valley this past Fall.
We had a lot of snow last winter, so it seems fitting that a snowy image makes the top 10 – especially considering it is from my favorite running trail; the Lost Lake Trail.
Getting a Brown Bear at sunrise can be challenging. Fortunately this year I had a few wonderful mornings with bears!
These are photos that I still really liked and just couldn’t leave out of my list.
Only wanted one Northern Lights photo in the top 10 – but this could have easily been one of them!
One of the two images from Anza-Borrego Desert State Park I considered for the list.
I thought these two were really cute! Bear photos could have made up my entire favorite 10 list!
Sedona Snow – Snowdona
Seeing Sedona covered with half a foot of fresh snow was wonderful!
Seward Boat Harbor
Even though I’m partial to my hometown, I could only have one boat harbor image in the top 10 – so the aurora image won out.
Lost Dutchman State Park
I really enjoy the desert – especially in the spring!
