December 19, 2012 – Photos of the Year – Our Top 10 Images for 2012
As another December comes to an end I am reflecting upon what has been an amazing year both personally and photographically. Some of my most favorite portfolio images of all time were photographed this year, and this year it was harder than ever to narrow all my favorites down to a “top 10″ list. I should also clarify “my” list to “our” list as Christina contributed an amazing image to this collection too!
Oddly enough, most of the top 10 images are from our most recent excursion to Iceland, but Iceland’s beauty speaks for itself; Rugged, pristine, delicate, vast, and visually stunning, Iceland is an amazing place to visit! Truthfully, If I had written a top 20 list, we would’ve seen a little more diversity of location, but Iceland was such an amazing and memorable experience for Christina and I, that these images naturally occupy much of my top 10!
So without further adieu:
These breathtaking waterfalls are located at the base of Kirkjufell mountain in Grundarfjörður on the western peninsula of Snæfellsnes (pronounced Snay-fells-nes), Iceland.
There’s something mysteriously beautiful about abandoned homes….
What an amazing view of the ocean this home must have had!
Christina photographed this amazing celestial phenomenon. Not only did she capture an image of the Northern Lights, but it looks like an apex straight out of Star Trek!
There’s something breathtaking about the Northern Lights as they dance across the night and light up the heavens above!
Roads are often overlooked as pure beauty. This s-shaped road in Iceland was spellbinding!
Ah! Who can forget the beautiful waterfall that inspired us to visit Iceland in the first place!
We ended up getting lost when we ventured off to photograph these amazing waterfalls in Iceland. Our GPS took us off road and cross country across some spots that I find are hard to believe are called roads! We made it upon our second attempt, and were mighty glad we did! I even managed to capture some emerging fall colors in this image!
This image is minimally post processed because mother nature blessed me with the most perfect noise free lighting! I love this high key image of this adorable sheep who was happily grazing along the Icebergs of Jokulsarlon.
What an opportunity it was to capture an image of a playground with the Icelandic highlands as the backdrop! I love these little moments of art inspiration!
