    Best and/or Favorite Images of 2021

    That went by remarkably fast. But, time to close out another year.

    What I consider to be my best and/or favorite images of 2021!

    Just after sunset on the Florida Keys.

    Family get together in Colorado included a visit to Great Sand Dunes National Park.

    A new visitor to my front yard in 2021...

    I could have picked from a few from the sunrises in Rhode Island. But this is perhaps my favorite image of 2021...at least top 3.

    ...and back to the Canadian Rockies and getting to hang out with Jonathan

    Not the best photo by any means....and perhaps I should replace this in the top list...but no shot made my heart race more than seeing this black bear race across my front yard...and pausing in my backyard long enough for me to get this picture....

    Subtle...but I love this image. Taken from my front steps....

    Favorites from 2021

    For me, the occasions these images evoke are a big part of why they are my favorites,

    epayero --- Great shots and welcome to the forum! Love those cityscapes especially. Hope to see more of your photos in the weekly contests!

    This is my favourite thread of the year and I look forward to seeing everybody's recap. Except for maybe the shots that Brant took while standing right next to me, because they blow away what I got . I didn't get out for many photo trips this year for some strange reason, but I'm still quite happy with what I could reel in.


    From a very lucky day in Kananaskis, Alberta:





    I love pikas! They are so incredibly fun to photograph.




    Yes it was that kind of year again...




    Did I mention that I love pikas?




    From the one photo trip that I did this year, in October. One of the prettiest grizzlies I have ever seen. It took three days of searching to find her and get this shot.




    Another photo that took a lot of effort to get: A woodland caribou, on the migration in Northern Alberta




    Bighorn sheep in Jasper, Alberta. I think the reason that I like this shot is because I saw well in advance that it might happen, so I got in the right position and waited patiently. It came together even better than I imagined.




    One from my backyard (well, 4 minutes from home, anyway)




    That's about it! Onwards to 2022.........

    I've got nothing that matches the wonderful pictures shown by other members here. The vast majority of my favorite pictures are family pictures I won't share here, and all the pictures I took this year were taken while walking with my young son. I never got much time to think about composition or anything else really. Still, there are a few that may be worth sharing here.

    The first one was taken the day after a snowfall.

    Then I took a picture of a famous tree on the Lake Geneva.

    Another classic view on the Lake Geneva.

    This one was taken at my little local zoo.

    One of my favorite mountains on a rather gloomy day.

    Peak by Pierre, on Flickr

    I saw this light while giving some milk to my son in my living room before the night and had to wait a bit more than I would have liked to capture it. I still like it.

    October evening by Pierre, on Flickr

    A view of the city of Martigny, Valais, Switzerland in October.

    Rhone Valley in October by Pierre, on Flickr

    And a last one.
