Favorites – 2016

It is this time of the year where one revisits the past 12 months. For me, among others, this means reviewing some of the 13,000 images I took during the year and select my favorites. Let me tell you that’s not an easy task! Already during the year, I pre select candidates.  But at the end, I still have to go down from something like 50-100 images to 10. This is now the six time I am doing this. Here are the links to the past years: 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015

It is always a pleasure to review past images. But my mind tends to drift away with all the memories that they evoke. Got to stay focused….

Without further due, here are my favorites of 2016. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed making and developing them.

Thank you for following my photographic adventures! I wish you a healthy, happy, and fulfilling 2017.

    1. Yeah, sometimes a scene works much better as a monochromatic image than a color one. Thank you for stopping by my site and commenting. Best – Daniel

    1. Thank you for your kind words, Jim! I appreciate you doing this Best Photos project. It is a lot of fun, a great motivation to review the past year’s photos, and a cool way to discover other photogs. Wishing you the best for 2017 as well. – Daniel
