    Best/Favourites of 2015

    Since year-end is a good time to take stock of one's experiences and accomplishments, I wanted to start a thread that allows us to revisit some of the favourite photos we've been able to collect in 2015. Here are a dozen of mine:

    Icefields Parkway, Jasper National Park


    Sunrise at "The Glory Hole", Jasper National Park


    Coyote in Jasper


    Aurora in Banff


    Brown bears in Alaska


    Mother with triplets, Alaska


    Viewpoint on a hike, Banff National Park


    Larch trees in Kananaskis, Alberta


    Bald Eagle, British Columbia


    Grizzly bear, Chilko Lake British Columbia


    Blonde Grizzly fishing for salmon


    "The Look"


    Thanks for viewing! And please share your own favourites too.

    Some beautiful photos already. Hard to follow. Here are my contributions. I didn't get out as much or shoot as many things as I had wanted to this year.

    Sunset over Chalco


    Reflections


    The Fourth


    Farmscape


    Blue


    Movement




    Platte River Falls


    Milky Way


    Wedding


    Fishing - These aren't awesome quality, but they were the first chance I ever had at capturing eagles. Definitely focal length limited.


    Juvenile Eagle

    But from Jonathan's description it isn't a competition. Rather he did say "Favorites" and that picture might not win awards but be on of your favorites.

    Along those lines here are a few of mine;

    Auroras in southern Finland

    This is one of my favorites. It is so rare to see strong auroras in southern part of finland. This image is actually totally untouched. Show's well how strong the auroras were, even when taking picture in strong streetlights and city light pollution.

    I agree 100%! (Except with the spelling of the word "favourites" ) I love seeing how each person's photographic style comes through in these shots. Thanks for sharing your images and please keep them coming.

    I suppose the two shots I posted from the UK were favourites.
    The others were my favorites.

    I had to do a grammar check;

    "Favorite
    and favourite are different spellings of the same word. Favorite is the preferred spelling in the U.S., while favourite is preferred in all the other main varieties of English. These preferences extend to all derivatives, including favorites/favourites, favoritism/favouritism, andfavorited/favourited."
