2012 – A Year In Twelve Images

´A Year In Twelve Images` is a self-appointment which reflects in a subjective way the shots of the past year I like most. The real challenge of this deed is to narrow down all of the images and to select not more than twelve photos,  which you think of that they are ´worthy`. Having done that, you can send the list/blog post to Jim Goldstein´s blog, a professional photographer based out of San Francisco; more info here: http://www.jmg-galleries.com/blog/2012/12/17/blog-project-best-photos-2012/ . A lot of the pros I´m ´following` since two years now are participating too in this project and it´s good to know/to see what they are up to. This is my second year as a “full-time-hobby-photographer” and I´m very grateful that I can live this life – photography fuels my soul like nothing before. With this in mind: Do what you love and love what you do! Enjoy!

    Impressive landscapes! I think the first one is my favorite, combines the star trails (something I still need to learn photographing) and beautiful mountains. I like your processing on the mountains.
