Narrowing down my "Best of 2016" has been tough. Over on my Facebook page I shared my "Top 5 Experiences" for 2016 since I had yet to make some decisions. In my December camera club meeting we were to share 5 of our most impactful images from 2016. Again the ones I chose were different. For that assignment I chose images that fostered some kind of learning for me. However, for this album, I wanted to share images that are an essence of me. Creative, colorful, balanced images of grand landscapes and quiet moments that represent the journey I embarked upon this last year. From the Washington coast, to the Cascade mountains, Whidbey Island, and Death Valley here are my experiences conveyed through artistry.
