Happy New Year, friends! I thought I'd start a thread where folks can post their favorite landscape photos from 2016. Let's limit it to no more than 10 images.

Looking forward to seeing what everyone's got! :)

Your friendly moderator,
Joel

    Thanks for starting this thread Joel!

    I went through the exercise of selecting my favorite photos from 2016 just a couple of weeks ago. My favorites were a mix of landscapes and close-ups with less than half of them fitting into the landscapes category. Here are my favorite landscapes.

    1 :: winter beach day, Jenness Beach, Rye, NH

    2 :: water and sculpted rocks, at the tip of the Schoodic Peninsula, Acadia National Park

    3 :: birds only! at the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, during the annual beach closure for the piping plover nesting season

    4 :: expansive, from the top of Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park

    5 :: through the woods, along Jesup Path, Acadia National Park

    If you're interested in seeing my other favorites, my full selection can be viewed in the gallery

    Ok, my turn. It was actually pretty depressing for me to go through my photos and realize how little landscape photography I did this year due to work and family commitments. Perhaps you know the effect. So most of these were shot on day trips close to home. Still I live in a great area so I really can't complain. Here are my contributions.

    1 A composite of meteors shot during the Perseid Meteor Shower at Glacier Point in Yosemite, NP.

    2 Sunrise from Glacier Point after the meteor shower.

    3 Shark Fin Cove Sunset, looking south

    4 Shark Fin Cove Sunrise on a different day looking north

    5 Breaking wave at Mavericks surfing spot near Half Moon Bay, CA.

    6 This incredible photo was actually shot by my daughter (with my camera and on the boat I was driving) but I'm posting it any way. :)

    7 These next two were taken with a little Sony RX100 IV pocket camera on a backpacking trip on Mt. Whitney, CA.

    9 And to wrap up the year, one of two photos of the SF Bay Bridge which I posted in a separate thread, taken on Christmas Morning.

    Here's to hoping for many more photo opportunities for everyone in 2017!

    TMcEwen, you got around this year. It's beautiful work. I particularly like the Parthenon shot and the South Dakota storm. The light and the composition in both are terrific.

  • StumblebumStumblebum I shoot, therefore I am Posts: 6,540 Major grins

    Great work Thomas!

    This was my first ever image. Felt I had to use in in my "top 2016"

  • kdogkdog artistically challenged San Jose, CAPosts: 11,016 moderator

    Beautiful work, Pat! 03, you said it was your first image. Not sure how to take that. You'd never taken a picture before?

    Yes, my first picture ever taken with anything else then a phone.
    My first picture that I went out to take.

    Now, I really want a full-frame camera :p I just need to practice a little bit more first ;)

    Though I lurk a lot on Dgrin I haven't posted any photos in awhile. Always liked these threads though.
    2016 Pretty slow year photography wise so picking a few favorites isn't all that hard.

    Great shots Amadeus. Do trains still run on that bridge?

    Thanks TMcEwen and Stumblebum. What happened to the quote/replay option?

    A few points of interest on that bridge...There are 2 trains one on each side of the Hudson that will get you into New York City. Metro north on the east side will bring you to Grand Central. This train bridge you see is on the west side you can ride this train which is NJ Transit to Hoboken. From there the Path train will take you under the river into the new and wondrous Occulus Terminal at World Trade Center/Freedom Tower. I need to get down there and take some pics....

    Also, this train trestle was used for a scene in George Clooney's movie Michael Clayton. He parks under the bridge, gets out and walks into a field, and kaboom the car blows up. You're looking at Orange County NY, yes that Orange County.

    Here is the clip:
