I’ve chosen twelve favorite photographs I’ve made in 2018 to share with you. They’re arranged chronologically, starting with a January moonrise from the night before a total eclipse and ending with winter sunlight brightening a trail on Christmas Day; both of these taken in Point Reyes. During the months between January and December I photographed in the Eastern Sierra, Death Valley, and northern New Mexico. I have little to say about each, but instead hope that some of what I felt while making these is expressed in the images themselves. Happy New Year!
