Peter’s Top Photos from 2011

Korean Friendship Bell, San Pedro, CA (#2)

The last week of every year, Mary and I do a last edit and we back-up of all of our photos from that year.  We also finish our yearbook and reminisce about all of the great trips and memories.  I tried to compile a list of top ten favorite photos I made in 2011, but it was nearly impossible with all of our trips and shoots.  Between the two of us, we archived nearly 2,000 images, about half from Mary and half from me.  I tried to pick one from every trip we took.  I could have picked many more from Oregon and from Capitol Reef.   I started with nineteen and reluctantly whittled it down to ten.  Next weekend, Mary will post her Top Ten.  So here are my “favorite” images from 2011:


The Golden Gate Bridge from Baker Beach, CA


Blue Fish Cove, Point Lobos State Park, CA


Bryce Amphitheater from Inspiration Point, Bryce Canyon National Park, UT


The barn at the Colene Clemens Winery, OR


White Sands National Monument, NM


LA Sunset from Azusa, CA


Temple of the Moon and the Temple of the Sun, Cathedral Valley, Capitol Reef National Park, UT


Sunrise Point, Bryce Canyon National Park, UT


Lower South Desert Overlook with Jailhouse Rock, Cathedral Valley, Capitol Reef National Park, UT

Next week, Mary’s Top Ten.  To see more of our photographs, please click on this link

    Hi Peter, I viewed the images you liked as your favorites and they’re really nice images. I have three that stand out for me and they are the Point Lobos image, the B&W sand dune image and the Cloudy Bryce Canyon Amphitheater image. All the best in 2012 and let’s see what Mary put together. Have a good one.

    Surprised you didn’t include any architectural images or the abstract shots from Vegas. Loved the water album too. Ahhhh! Too many to narrow! Can’t wait to see what Mary comes up with after seeing her blog on finishing.
