2018 Year in Review

One full year in Colorado and visits to 3 countries and 10+ states. Here are 20 of my favorite images from 2018.

Around New Years for the last several years I have been attempting to pick my favorite 20 images from the preceding year. These may not all be crowd favorites, or my most technically perfect photos, but each represents a favorite moment that I want to remember from the year. After all,  isn’t that the point of photography?

Many of the below images have been shared before. Many photos that originally jumped out at me at the time of taking them still jump out at me today. Others are new images that have grown on me over time.

Castle Mountain in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. This mountain could be seen from just about everywhere during the hiking portion of our trip.


A deer roaming the foothills outside of Denver in the early morning light.


Pretty much a tropical paradise. Isla Pastores, Panama.


Perhaps my favorite photo of the Alaska trip. The clouds this morning were ebbing and flowing, creating countless compositions.
