I consider these lists more of a top 10 favourite photographs of that year than the “best”. Which of my photographs are “the best” is probably better left for others to decide. Once again, I am making this post so I can be a part of Jim Goldstein’s annual Your Best Photos project. Look for his post early in the new year with all the entries from a wide variety of photographers. His project is always a great place to find new photographers and their work.
I hope you enjoy the following photographs and I am curious if you have a favourite. Clicking on each photograph takes you to my Image Archive but below you’ll also find links to corresponding blog posts if they exist. While these are in no specific order that first panorama of Bagley Lakes might be my favourite overall. Here are my top 10 photos of 2015:

Some wonderful images this year, Michael. I love the city coast shot and tanker with fog especially with its great ethereal quality. The pano and reflection shot are also especially engaging for me. Cheers & best wishes for a wonderful 2016!
Thank you very much Gary! 🙂
Beautiful images Michael! For me, Lower Falls with the Arnica, and the freighter in fog have to be my two favorites! Best wishes for you and your family as we head into 2016! 🙂
Thank you Rachel – I’m not surprised the waterfall is amoung your favourites! 🙂
Very nice collection, Michael. The Freighter in the Fog is one of my favorites as well – very captivating. The Deer Lake reflection also has a beautiful balance of color. Have a great holiday and all the best in 2016!
Thank you Russ – hope your 2016 is already off to a good start!
Awesome collection of favorites, Michael!! 🙂
I think my favorite of your favorites is the second-to-last, “Fog nearly hides the island at Whytecliff Park”. It really grabbed my attention as I scrolled down. The leading lines of the logs highlight the depth and drama of the island disappearing into the fog!! 2015 was a great year for you!! 🙂
Happy New Year!! 🙂
Thanks Tim! We don’t get a lot of fog around here compared to some places so it was nice to photograph down there with a bit of a different look.
No apple trees? Ha ha. You had a worthwhile year. I like the Freighter in Fog and Burnaby best, but the others are all great too. Wishing you a prosperous 2016.
Congrats on a great year Michael. May you have just as good if not better 2016!
Great collection, really enjoyed them. I’m partial to Red-winged blackbirds so I really like that image. Look forward to seeing the results for 2016!
Another wonderful selection this year! My favorite is the freighter in fog. Keep up the good work in 2016!
Lovely set of images, for me I think I like the Barnaby image the best with the misty looking city sitting in all that nature.
A gorgeous collection Michael, I especially like the reflection image #2. You had a great year for photos in 2015. Wishing you even more this year.
A lovely collection of images from the past year. I particularly liked the last two for the “complex simplicity” of their composition.

Great Collection Michael! If you have any plans to come south of the border this year, I will have a show at a local gallery in March. There will be 19 metal prints, mostly 24 X 36 & 20 X 30. Hope you have a successful and prosperous 2016. Rob
