2016 was an eventful year for Sarah and I. We bought land in southwest Colorado in the heart of the San Juan Mountains and will shortly be building a house on it, sold our house in Denver, and moved full time into our Airstream trailer. During that time we went over 5 months (!) without taking a single photo, by far the longest stretch since we've been photographing.
Despite the "Lost Summer" we were able to get a decent amount of photography in during the rest of the year. We started the year in Death Valley, moved to the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, and then went up to Nevada and Utah during spring. After summer we spent 10 days in Iceland leading a workshop, a few weeks in the San Juan Mountains and south Utah photographing fall colors, and then spent some time along the Oregon Coast in November.
All photos I have processed from this year can be viewed on my 2016 Portfolio page, including:
- Death Valley Winter
- Southwest Spring
- Iceland Autumn
- Colorado Autumn
- Southwest Autumn
- Autumn Monochrome
- Pacific Northwest Winter
Finally, I have collected a few of my favorite photos of 2016, some of which I will include below with brief captions. You may also be interested in the 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 versions of this post.
