I spent this morning looking through the photos I shot in 2016, and it was cool to relive some great photo trips – both personal and assigned. As usual, most of my work was shot in New England this year, but I had the honor to shoot for some new conservation clients as well as some new subject matter, such as Maine’s working waterfronts. Overall, I’m happy with what I produced and I’ve made an attempt to select out my favorite 10 images of the year, a task I always find challenging. I’m sure if you ask me to choose from these same photos again a year from now I’d come up with a different list, maybe much different. The photos in this list are in no particular order, though the above shot of Mount Madison in the fall in New Hampshire’s White Mountains was my most ‘liked’ image on social media this year. The list is a mix of landscape and recreation images, with one hard-working lobsterman thrown in. Some of these I chose because they best represented the moment. Others I chose because the moment itself was a favorite. If you like these and want to see my first edit, which resulted in a Top 50, you can check out this gallery.
Without further delay, here are my favorites of 2016:
Happy New Year everyone!
