Favorites of 2017!

For the past several years I have been creating a collection of my favorite images from the past year.  I made this collection on December 21st, so it does not include any of the great images I have made kayaking on the American River this week! Up to that point I had kept 39,439 images and I probably threw away a few thousand. This is a tough exercise, narrowing down thousands of images to just 25. If you don't believe me, try it with your images. It will make you a better editor.

These are the images that I liked the best, either for the picture themselves, the memories or both. Enjoy my favorite images from 2017 (so far!)
