Favorite Photos of 2016

Just a few of my favorite photos of 2016:

Favorite Photos of 2016

It’s always hard to decide on which images I like best because so much of it depends on the mood I’m in at the time. Same thing goes when someone asks who my favorite musical artists are.

This past year took me to some old and new places;

  • visiting two different wild bison herds in Minnesota (watch for a separate post coming soon!).

Bison Moody Sky

  • seeing petroglyphs that are older than the Egyptian pyramids just a couple hours from home (probably a separate post coming on that one, too).
  • visiting several Minnesota and Michigan state parks that I’d never been to before.
  • the very familiar North Shore of Lake Superior as well as old haunts on the South Shore of Lake Superior.

  • crossing the Mackinac Bridge for the first time in decades (I’ve done more crossings than I can count over my lifetime – being both a former Yooper and Troll from Michigan).

  • FINALLY getting my carcass over to Isle Royale National Park for the first time (I even lived in Houghton, MI where park headquarters are located back in the early ’80’s)
Rock of Ages Lighthouse

  • seeing the finish of several old and new friends at the tail end of their run across Wisconsin to raise awareness about suicide prevention and mental health (they did it in 8 days. Word).

There were also some lifers for birding, shooting a few more trail races, and learning new digital photo processing techniques like double exposures (some of which are featured in the video).

Which are your favorite photos of 2016?

Holiday Sale Perks

In addition to saving a boat load of money during the holiday sale, all images are processed by professional labs that use conservation grade archival inks and materials.

Items will be sent directly to the address you provide, so you don’t have to worry about packaging and shipping¬†items yourself if you’re sending a gift directly to someone. Items will not be gift wrapped.

Gallery wrapped canvases and metal prints are “ready to hang” as is and don’t need additional framing.

Holiday Sale Questions?

Maybe you’ve got more than one gift and you’d like to have them all shipped directly? In that case, you’d need to order each gift separately and enter the address where you’d like it shipped (US or Canada only). You can use the coupon code as often as you’d like, but it may be cheaper to have everything sent to you to save on shipping costs and get a higher percentage discount.

Once an order is placed it goes to the lab for processing immediately and cannot be cancelled, so please contact me with any questions before placing your order.

Happy Holidays!
