2020 in retrospect

2020 comes to a welcome end tomorrow, and I’ve been thinking about this last year and all it has been. While it had so many challenges and disappointments, looking through my images from the year, I was pleasantly surprised at all the good memories I had and the images I was able to create. I’m not going to go into detail about each image but I had to narrow this down from about 50 favorites, which included wildlife, nature and even some people. But, staying true to my passion, I’ve settled on 20 landscapes for my tribute to the year. Watch for another post with some other subjects.

Like everyone else, I am happy to be leaving 2020 behind and looking forward to 2021 with hope for brighter days ahead.

I’m headed back to Driggs this week to teach my first photo workshop of 2016. I’m excited and just a bit nervous, but really looking forward to it.  In the mean time, the two autumn workshops are filling. If you’re interested in either of these, don’t delay in securing your spot with a small deposit. Read all the details here.

Winter Roundup

I must say it was sooo nice to get that one good snowfall back in December. I didn’t get to make an extended trip during the peak of it, but I did some local shooting. Here’s some highlights.

In mid February I was finally able to make a trip south. I had business in Boise and Twin Falls, so only had one good evening of photography and a few travel stops.

Maybe I’ll be wrong, but I think that’s about it for winter around here. On to spring. 🙂
