2012 Year in Review

I got to see and do a lot of things in 2012.  I didn't accomplish much in January and didn't get out to take any pictures.

In February, Ken and I headed over to Lake Michigan and the Saint Joseph lighthouse.

March found us taking pictures of the old Boblo boats and a couple of laid up freighters.

April was non-productive and I took no pictures, but in May I purchased a new DSLR camera and Ken and I headed back to Lake Michigan in an attempt to photograph a partial eclipse of the setting sun.  The weather was hazy and we were unable to get pictures of it.  This is the first shot from my new camera at the Saint Joseph light.

June saw me on a two and a half week, 5200 mile trek across the country.  My primary destination, and where I spent most of my time, was Glacier National Park.

In July I visited the Irish Hills and passed this field just west of Saline, Michigan.

In August I traveled to Sault Saint Marie and visited the Soo Locks. I also made my second attempt at night photography.

September took me to the North Country Trail in the area of Adrian, Michigan.

I started to remember how much I enjoy macro photography in October in Lillie Park.

I made my first, clumsy attempt at portrait photography in November.

December took me to Cuyahoga Valley National Park along the route of the Ohio-Erie Canal.

Here's hoping to an even more productive 2013.


  1. I like that picture of the sunflower field. I really like that fountain picture.

    1. Thanks, Ken. I do to. So hard to select just a few.

  2. And now that they are showing up better, that last picture looks pretty good as well. We definately need to go back there in the spring when stuff starts to bloom.
