2016 – The Year in Pictures

It’s hard to believe another year has come to a close, but looking back on 2016 I’m filled with gratitude and amazement for the visual opportunities that I’ve been fortunate to witness.

A decade ago Jim Goldstein began this popular project, which has evolved over the years to include numerous friends and colleagues whose work continues to be a source of inspiration.

Here I’ve selected a few of my favorite images from the past year. These are not necessarily my best or most popular, but each represents a special moment in time in which the beauty of this amazing world (both natural and man-made) passed before my lens.

Please share and enjoy! And feel free to let me know your thoughts. You can click on any image for a large high quality view, to learn more about it or share individually. I look forward to your selects in the weeks ahead, and wish everyone a wonderful holiday and Happy New Year!

  1. Great collection of images, Russ. I love the abbey cloister image, beautiful patterns, straight lines, and great processing. House on Fire Ruin also really stands out to me. Great color, lighting, and pattern, really draws the eye in to the ruins and absolutely looks like a huge fire erupting from them.

  2. Hi Russ – I am really enjoying the diversity of this collection. My favorite is the top photo, which is one of the prettiest photos of Yosemite’s trees I can remember seeing. Happy New Year!

    1. Thank you, Rob. Hopefully the flow will be going strong when you visit. I’ve been there many times over the years, but this is the most spectacular event I’ve seen. Happy New Year!
