It’s rather hard to believe I’ve been writing and posting on the blog for over 5 years now. Sharing my thoughts, emotions, ideas, photographs, and most importantly my enthusiasm with you for nature and photography has been a privilege as well as a profound learning experience. Over the past year I made a conscious effort to blog only when I felt I really had something to say, which for me usualy means something that provides inspiration or valuable information that you can use as fuel for your own pursuits, whether photographic or not. In a real sense that’s how I navigate my own creative path, using what pushes me to move forward, and discarding that which is a distraction. I try and apply that same philosophy to the blog.
So with that said, here are the most popular posts of 2011, in no particular order. Thank you all for reading, for your feedback and comments, and your continued support!
