In many ways 2016 was for the birds, but that was not always bad. During 2016 I discovered how rewarding (and how difficult) it is to photograph these fleeting creatures, leading to one of my favorite sunset images (above). It led to my favorite surf image as well… Continue reading
This year, instead of one large review, I decided to break down my annual recap into smaller groupings, each presenting just a few images of one aspect of 2016.
