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.
Landscape photography~ No other activity brings my heart such joy as experiencing sunrise surrounded by the fragrance of mountain wildflowers, watching a lake steam in the first light of an autumn morning, discovering new locations both near and far and listening to the babbling of a mountain stream, or watching the last of the sunset colors fade into night…
2019 was a year filled with all of these things and more and for that I am thankful.
It is with a significant sadness in my heart that I will embark upon the medical challenges presented to me going forward into 2020, but also with hope that I may continue pursuing these things that fulfill me.
