I had a bit too much time on my hands for the first weekend of the year; my wife was not feeling well with a cold and we cancelled our plans to travel up the coast for a few days, where I might have had a chance for some new work; so instead, I put together this little retrospective of some personal favorites from the past year's blog posts. I've been debating whether to actually put this up or not, but finally decided that although a few of you may have been around from the beginning and have seen all of these images, many more probably have not. Not all were created in 2009 of course, but they were all posted here at some point during the year. I know I don't often dig back into the older posts on most of the blogs I frequent, so I assume other people don't do a lot of that either:) Hopefully they are worth another quick look, anyway.
I borrowed this idea from one of the photo blogs that I always read by Patrick Morand of French Landscapes, who posted his own 15 favorites of the past year last week, so I thought would give it a go also. BTW, Patrick lives in the south of France, near St. Tropez and makes really awesome seascapes and pastoral landscape images of his home area... be sure to give his work a look.
