A Quick Look Back



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.

These images are all worthy of looking at many times. Must have been hard to just pick a few.

it's always great to see your pictures, your pictures are always amazing and inspiring, though they are all great, but you make me wish to go back to death valley and try again, haha!

"The Photographic Aspect" has been included in this weeks A Sunday Drive. I hope this helps to attract even more new visitors (not to mention customers!) here.

Nice Show, Mark. I have seen all of these, and YES, they were worth a second look!

As an ex-pro and hard to please i want to thank you for sharing your classic gifts. I loved your control of 'saturation' and composition to keep the eye on a happy tour of every image. I shall of course be back, and do some delving. Maybe I should thank your wife for catching a cold; hope she is well now, and can think of other ways of getting you to rifle the archives. Go well, Bob
