I posted this once already, but the colors were stripped when converting images for web viewing. I figured out how to fix this, so am posting this post again.

This year I decided to participate in a project that JMG-Galleries blog has been running every year since 2007. I wanted to do this last year, but just never made the time to. I don't blog as much as I would like to. Maybe I can try again this year (2012). :) We shall see how life rolls. But as for now, here are my favorite 10 photos that I took throughout 2011. The list started at 21 which was tough getting it down to 10, but Jim said 10, so 10 it is. :)
I realized one notable thing when I went through my photos, is that I didn't shoot a lot of landscap

e - serious landscape photography. I want to change that this year and shoot more! I miss getting wrapped up into a scene where everything else in life disappears and your just focused on what your photographing. That actually happened on a recent trip to Yosemite. I hiked up to Vernal Falls past the viewing bridge. As I was hiking to the top, I spent 3 hours photographing the falls. I tore it apart in pieces photographically.

Anyway, here are my favorite 2011 photos (no specific order):

Grizzlies of British Columbia

CA - 199 on the backside of Anacapa Island

Pt Mugu


Bottom of Vernal Falls, Yosemite


Mom and her baby. Orangutans


Tunnel View in Yosemite

Orcas traveling along the southern part of the island

Runner up: Humpback Whale off the California coast

Thank you Jim for the motivation and deadline as that helped me make sure I got this done this year. :)
I hope every-ones year is starting off grand!
