Top 10 Posts for 2011
My most viewed post by far is from an extended backpacking trip I did in Glacier National Park in Montana:
The North Circle - Glacier National Park
However, while this was my most viewed post in 2011, the post itself is from 2009. Hard to believe it has already been 2-1/2 years, but it is true.
So, here are the most popular posts from 2011:
1. Dr. Jose Rizal Park - Wow!
2. Photographing Yellowstone National Park.
3. New Wind River Gallery!
4. New Year's Eve from Kerry Park.
5. A Special Offer for the Holidays.
6. Craig Romano & Don Geyer - A Special Book Offer.
7. Buy Our Archival Quality Note Cards.
8. Photographing Fall Canyon in Death Valley National Park.
9. Yosemite National Park in Spring.
10A. Buck-and-Rail Fences in Grand Teton National Park.
10B. Photographing the Racetrack in Death Valley National Park.
That's right, there was a tie for the ten spot!
Some surprises with this list? You bet. I would not have guessed that a cityscape post would be my most viewed post from the year. I also was surprised that my extended backpacking trip to Buck Creek Pass/Image Lake/Spider Gap in the Glacier Peak Wilderness of Washington did not crack the top ten.
So, what will be new for 2012? Lots! For starters, I will begin working on additional galleries to my web site, to include wildlife and Seattle/Puget Sound. I also will be adding new images to my North Cascades Gallery.
In the coming months I will be visiting the Skagit Valley and Fir Island to photograph eagles and snow geese. I will also be spending more time at the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge and the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge. March will find me visiting Othello, WA for the Othello Sand Crane Festival. I have never been to this event.
Special photography trips I am contemplating this year include Southern Utah, Wind River Range, the Eastern Sierra and Canadian Rockies. I will not be able to visit all these destinations, so I will have to choose.
In 2012 I plan to add a new element to my blog as well: I plan to share my personal photography techniques to include everything from trip planning to lighting to compositions and more. I hope others will find some of my suggestions helpful. If you have any specific subjects you would like me to write about, feel free to post a comment or shoot me an e-mail. I am always open to suggestions!
Here is to a happy 2012!
