Favorite Images From 2017
Favorite Images of 2017
With the year starting off with a great snowfall that covered the landscape with its beautiful fluffy white snow, it’s only fitting that 2017 should end with a snow, once again covering most of the east coast. This past year has been another great year for my family and me. I got to explore areas of the east coast that I have never been but have been on my bucket list of places to explore and photograph. One of those places was Falling Spring Falls in Virginia’s Allegheny County. This is one of the prettiest waterfalls in Virginia as well as on the east coast, and if you have not been to this waterfall, it is well worth the trip. My family and I also continue to photograph and explore areas of Shenandoah National Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway, hiking through some of the best terrain in Virginia.
During the summer, my family and I traveled back to California to visit my family. It was great to see my family, and while there, I made a trip through the Sierra Mountains, which included stops at Alpine Lake, Big Trees, Desolation Wilderness, Yosemite National Park, Lake Tahoe and gold panning at Coloma. It was great to finally see the lakes and reservoir filled to the brim with water alongside the snowy mountain peaks.
The fall season out here on the east coast was very interesting this year. In some areas it came very early, and other areas it came VERY late. While photographing areas in West Virginia, fall colors would be peaking in one area, but the next valley over would still be 90% green. One of my favorite trips I took this fall was a camping trip with my sons to Grayson Highlands State Park in Virginia. This is one of my favorite areas to explore and photograph, and I was able to capture some amazing images on this trip, including my favorite image that I took this year atop Twin Pinnacles Trail. 2017 was a great year, and I looking forward to the adventures of 2018. Below are my 15 favorite images from this year. Click the link below each image to read more about the location, which includes some helpful photo tips.
