2017 was a busy year. Busy is good, if you're taking pictures. It is even better when you have beautiful things to photograph. We traveled to virtually every part of the eastern half of the North Atlantic; from Bonaire to Iceland. In the past 12 months, I have taken just over 25,000 photographs. So, I must be having fun. But quantity isn't the reason to take photographs. I have been pleased with the progress I have made both technically and artistically this year. So, I hope that you, my audience, will find increasing pleasure in seeing these images.
A couple of years ago, I started posting an annual "Best of" collection. But as I went through my images, I realized that almost half of all of my photographs were taken at the Orlando Wetlands Park. Since I get to be there early and late, and get to take photographs of the flora and fauna to show visitors on my tours, I get a lot of practice. So this year I'm posting two different "end of year" collections: one highlighting my travels and the other my photography at the Orlando Wetlands Park. The former is just called Best of 2017 and the latter Orlando Wetlands Park 2017. Enjoy!
