I always find it difficult to narrow down a years worth of photographs into one list of the “best”. It is a good exercise, however, to really sit down and go through your work and determine what images best fit your current vision for your photography. I did this back in 2010 and 2011 as a part of Jim Goldstein’s project and I am please to enter my images again for this years version.
All of these photographs are available as Fine Art Prints.
So in no particular order these are the “top” (probably better termed as favourite) photos I have made in 2012.

I love the Lion’s Gate Bridge Michael. Perfect timing!
Thank you Rob!
Not a bad one in the bunch, Michael. Well done!
Nice pictures, and I’m glad you chose the bridge as a top 10. 🙂
Thanks Johanna, I wouldn’t have been there that night if not for you. I like the version with the bike light trail too – probably not one I’ll be able to replicate any time soon!
Wonderful set my friend, a superb year! The red maple and snowy owl images are particularly visually stunning!
Thank you Alex! I especially like the Owl photo because of how much patience it required and that the nice light showed up just in time!
Gorgeous images Michael! My faves are the Japanese Maple and I love how you lead the eye in Larrabee state Park Sunset!
Thank you Deb! The foreground options at Larrabee were extensive!
What a beautiful collection! Thanks for sharing these via Jim Goldstein’s list.
Thank you Dave!
Beautiful set of images there Michael. I especially love the lupine.
Visiting from Best Photos of 2012 by JMG-Galleries Blog Readers
Thanks Rebecca! 🙂
Just coming over from Jim’s list and slowly working my way through 🙂 Some wonderful images Michael. And I agree with ‘Favourite’ of ‘Top’. I’ve approached it as my Personal Favourites for the last six years.
Thanks John. Even a favourites list can be tough – they would probably change all the time if I was asked to re-evaluate them.
Terrific portfolio of images from 2012. It was obviously a very good year for you Michael. All the best in 2013!
Thank Tim – you too!
A great collection of images Michael. I love the color and diversity – the owl and the lupine are superb. Here’s to a great 2013!
Thanks Russ – a great 2013 to you too!
