My Favourite Images from 2013

December 31, 2013

Excluding the 2013 panoramic images I posted yesterday, below are my “best of” selections for 2013. It was a much tougher task than I imagined to go through a year of images and just pick off a few. I have allowed myself 24 images; I figured two per month would be an acceptable average. I’m sure I have some months with no “best of” images and other months with many more. These images are the ones that resonate with me today. Tomorrow, the selections might be completely different. And although a detached/non-bias/objective selection process would be ideal, forget it. There is always some emotional connection to images and since this is just my look back, I have allowed that part of the selection process to remain. So here goes…

We start off with images from around Abraham Lake in Alberta. I always seem to find myself there sometime in January/February and 2013 was no exception.

And then mix in a few favourites while exploring other parts of Alberta during the Winter…

Spring 2013 was a slow period for me. I did not do that much shooting but did spend a great deal of time planning my June solo trip to Iceland. So, it should be no surprise that some favourites from Iceland make the list…

Once I was back from Iceland, I still managed to get a few weekends in exploring abandoned homesteads in Alberta..

Image

And a few weekends backcountry camping in the Rockies…

Image

During the Fall of 2013, I was in Ontario and then again off looking for abandoned homesteads in Alberta…Image

Image

I mentioned emotional attachment to images…well, my wife and I celebrated our 30th Anniversary in Mexico in October, so it should be no surprise that a few images from that trip made the list…

Image

Image

Image

In November, I again found myself exploring abandoned places in Berlin but my favourite image from that trip came from a very “not abandoned” office building…

Image

Back home and still exploring Alberta, the new snow contributed to these two images…

Image

Image

And finally, to wrap up the year, the image below was taken around 1pm on Dec. 31st, 2013. Just inside the deadline…

Image

It seems my favourite image is always the one I just finished processing, so I thought it would be fitting to include this one.

Well that is my year in review. Certainly not as much shooting as other years but certainly some productivity. Thanks for stopping by to have a look. All the best for 2014!

Cheers, Scott
