Now that 2014 has ended, I thought I would take a look back at my photography work from the past year, and share some of my favorites. Like many artists, I went through phases where I could not take enough photos. Unfortunately, I also went through periods where I did not feel inspired to photograph much at all. The images in this gallery are reminders to me of the amazing beauty on this earth! 2015 is a new year, with many places to explore, enjoy, and capture with my camera. I hope you enjoy my favorite images from the past year.

I discovered a new "favorite place" this year in Central Arizona, near Payson. Not far out of town, the highway climbs onto the Mogollon Rim, where one is treated to magnificent views of the forest. Woods Canyon Lake, a small but beautiful area 4 hours north of Tucson, provided all the amenities I look forward to..... fishing, mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, and watching wildlife.
In March, Sunny and I made our first ever visit to Hawaii. It sure was hard to identify several favorites from this trip. Everything was so beautiful! Beaches, tropical rain forest, historical monument, tropical flowers, plants, and of course the luau! Great memories.......
My other favorites can be seen in the following slide show. For best viewing, click on the link at the bottom to see full resolution images.
