It’s that time–time to look back, to review the year’s photographic efforts. If you were to ask me earlier, I’d say that I hadn’t made very many significant photographs this past year. But, like presents set aside to unwrap later, I’ve found, hidden away, a number of worthy images to share with you. They’re now unwrapped and presented to you here in a review of some of my favorite photos of 2022!
Please scroll down to see the selections. Each photo is linked to its page on the website. The complete collection can also be found here: 2022 Favorite Photos.

New Year’s Day Geese, January 1
Starting the year off right, my wife Jean and I celebrated the morning of her birthday with a walk in the Point Reyes Wetlands. We heard the geese honking as they approached quickly from the north. My small Sony camera was in my pocket. I quickly pointed it overhead, and hoped my shutter was set fast enough!
Forest Canopy, Rush Creek, April 6
With the changing light there are moments when you notice hitherto unremarkable shapes in the forest. I wandered from the Rush Creek trail to look closer at these branches.
Spring Oasis, Muddy Hollow Creek, April 7
On a late afternoon walk, I was drawn to the sunlight streaming through the trees at Muddy Hollow Creek. I paused to look deeper as the new spring growth became radiant in the last light.
