Well, 2012 has now come to an end and it was another great year for photography and everything else. I had a wide spread of photographic adventures including a long road trip into Montana and Idaho, several short backpacking excursions and a great time exploring the back roads of Colorado as the aspen changed colors. This was also the year I became obsessed with riding my bicycle - often with my large format camera gear - which gave me the opportunity to view Weld County at a slower pace and see new things. I'm sure 2013 will hold just as many adventures and photos, and I have the best of wishes for everyone's new year! Here's my 12 personal favorite photos from 2012, not necessarily in any order. Some are my favorites due to the journeys and memories that accompany them, and some are just ones that I feel are my strongest. Enjoy and happy new year!!
