A few frames from 2011

Okay…this might be more than a few. But much to the disappointment of my wife, I don’t really have the ability to whittle down the year to only 20-30 photos. I can’t do it. I had too much fun and so many images made the year amazing for me. It was tough enough leaving out the ones I did.

So because there are a ton of photos below, I’ll keep it short. This is basically a timeline of the year…as in all images are posted in the order I took them. They are limited to my professional work, meaning they don’t include any personal family images. I may do something with those next week before the end of the year.

Finally, I want to thank all of you out there who read my blog, comment and support my work. I can’t possibly respond to everyone or show my full thanks, but I do appreciate it so much! Merry Christmas to you all!

And now…I hope you enjoy a not-so-brief look at the year my camera captured!

It all started with a wedding on January 1st…

    Great post dude. Definitely not whittled down by any means, but love the year you’ve had. The shot of the lower half of the wedding couple on the beach + petals is fantastic, among other winners. Looking forward to 2012, and great to meet you in flesh this year!

    Mike, you are a terrible show-off. Most of us are happy with finding 10 decent shots in a year but you throw out about 100 excellent frames. Are you just trying to make the rest of us feel bad or something? How dare you be so darn good at this! 🙂

    Great collection Mike. You know that I think the world of you as a weather photog, but your family/wedding stuff really can overshadow it. You have a talent for making your subjects look comfortable and at ease, that I don’t see in a lot of other people’s work.

    Fantastic montage. I have enjoyed looking at your work so much over the last year and look forward to see what next year holds. I can honestly tell you I have learned a bunch by reading your words and looking at your pictures. I can hope to one day be the photographer and communicator you are. Merry Christmas.

    Mike, this is fantastic. Very well done my friend. Looks like it was a busy year. I will probably copy your idea in a post of my own this week 🙂 Happy Holidays buddy.
