According to my Lightroom catalog, I took 4560 pictures last year. Many pictures were taken in bursts to capture an appealing combination of light and shadows in a landscape or taken in a sequence of pictures of the same scene to produce a panorama or high dynamic range of light and shadows. So the numbers are not so significant, other than to make the job of reviewing how and where I spent time more time consuming.

In selecting my favorite 10 – 20 pictures, I found a good balance of time spent with friends on short and long trips for photography, biking, and hiking. I found that my memories were captured in photographs for most months. And, I found a real beauty in the natural world and the universe. I praise God for His amazing artistry! And, I praise God for His provision of health, family, good friends and a variety of opportunities to explore and enjoy.
