Gordon, do you mind actually posting the images.  Over time, links change and then become dead.  Leaving the post irrelevant. 

 

Just my thoughts.  Thanks.  Up to you.

One of my favs is the April full moon known as the Pink Moon.

It was serendipitous that we arrived at Bryce Canyon, Utah that afternoon.

The sunset gave the formations a pink cast as the Pink moon rose.

And finally, my top one, from the PN Photowalk Challenge.  I didn't realize how much I liked this until I opened it in Lightroom, to edit it.  I lost track of it until I found it again last night.  When I compared it to everything else, it still blew me away.  This was taken in Port Moody, on a tripod, with the 24-70 Tammy and 2 - 3 stop ND filters.

While I didn't get to shoot much in 2017, I do have some favorites.

 

 When I was younger, I shot weddings. there has always been something from each wedding that would make this list. But, I shot my last wedding of my son's wedding. This shot was a fluke, but I love it and think this is the best shot to end shooting weddings.

Slow start this year, too much work and sickness.  On the mend from a bad cold.

 

Going to try and expand out my subject matter this year.  Hoping to do more scenery and maybe some more flora.
