Favorite Images of the Year… 5 of 2015

bestof2015-header

After 2015 has reached its inevitable end, it’s this time of the year when you reflect on your work as a photographer and browse through the images of the 365 days gone by. If my photographic New Year’s resolution this past year was to shoot less, I would certainly have accomplished this goal, but all kidding aside, here are my 5 favorite images released this year, not particularly taken in 2015.

Nightfall Neret

Nightfall Neret - Purchase Print or License Neret (the Catalan word for the rusty-leaved alpenrose – ‘rhododendron ferrugineum’) blooming above Gran Estany d’Amitges during one of the best sunset displays I was fortunate to witness in the mountains.Aigüestortes NP, Pyrenees, Spain

Light Bath

Light Bath - Purchase Print or License The emerging leaves of maples, beeches and alders are glowing in the late afternoon sunlight and offer a great backdrop for trunks such as this Oregon pine/Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) in the immediate foreground.Ore Mountains, Germany

Higher Calling

Higher Calling - Purchase Print or License Much more than just pixels. Read WHY.Lago di Landro, Dolomites, Italy

Dazzling Dancers

Dazzling Dancers - Purchase Print or License Colorful grasses appear to dancing in the wind high up on a ridge in the Czech part of the Ore Mountains, surrounded by old birches who have seen a fair share of precipitation, wind and ice.Ore Mountains, Czech Republic

Congealed

Buy Prints or License Congealed An intimate view of the impressive basaltic columns that make up the Devils Postpile National Monument in the Sierra Nevada of California. The polygonal structure, which is said to be some odd 100,000 years old, formed when a huge pool of lava cooled evenly and slowly. Similar structures can be found around the globe in areas with high volcanic activity in the past.Devil’s Postpile National Monument, Ca, USA

As usual a few days late, but here’s to a great, stress-free, healthy and prosperous 2016! Cheers.
