Pick Your Favs of 2014

Another year is coming to a close and this is the time I get to reflect on all the adventures we had in 2014. The best part; I get to share my favorite images with you. Looking back through my images I found way too many ‘favorites’ so I narrowed down my selects to 23 and I need your help to pick the top 10.
Take a look, the images are numbered 01 to 23. Leave a comment with your favorites (up to 10) or send me an email. You only need to use the number.
Be sure to put them in the order of your favorite first. I will tally the results and post the Best of 2014 in January. Thanks for your help and I’ll see you in the New Year.

    Wow, how do you pick a favorite. They are all great. My top 5 in order- 03, 12, 21, 18 and 01. On wildlife it would be interesting if you posted lens, camera and distance from the subject. For bears I think a 1200MM lens would be best (lots of distance!).

  10. Dennis HolcombDennis Holcomb12-09-2014

    Jim:

    Very nice gallery of pictures. My favorites are: 13, 8, 1, 11, 17, 19,18, 7, 20, 18

    PS: I am still looking for that special button on my Canon DSLR. I figure if Nikon has one, Canon must have put one somewhere on theirs. I just can’t seem to find it. Must be getting blind in my old age. Still looking though. I might call Canon Professional Services to see if they can offer any insight.

    Hard to choose. The fact that you were actually there (in the rhythm!!!) to be able to get those shots makes me very happy. I want to do that……again!

    My favorites are: 1, 4, 12, 3, 7, 15, 10, 13, 9, 5, 2, and 21

    You really want them in order? That’s like choosing a favorite child.
    Here’s an approximation 14, 1,4,12,3,8,20,10,13,15. Obviously a preference for furry things.

  35. Ellyn LindleyEllyn Lindley12-19-2015

    Jim your pictures are just awesome. I pick wildlife, # 4 although the birth # 8 was the most unusual and the whale too close#11 must have been risky. For landscape, # 17, 23, and 18 in that order. Just amazing shots, love seeing them, Thanks!
