Favorite Images from 2013

I struggle to pick the ten best photos for the year particularly so for 2013. I often include some that have some personal attachment even though they may not be a great photo. For example the snowy view across the pond is from our bedroom; I feel so blessed to wake up to this every morning and want to share in our good fortune. These snapshots of life swell the collection to 40 or 50 images. And the emotional tug often keeps them in the next round of selection, even if there may be better selects in the remarkable trips and projects of the year. So here are my favorite photos from 2013

Maybe to progress as a photographer, a good resolution for 2014 would be to focus on a best of list.
