Best of 2016

As I sat down and attempted to pick out my top 10 images from 2016, I quickly realized that we’d be well into 2017 before I finalized that process.  So my next step was to try to break them down by category…  That wasn’t happening either.  What I came up with was one desktop folder with about 30 of my favorite images.  Just like last year, these aren’t the best technical images, but ended up being the ones that told the most interesting story.  In this recap of 2016, I’ll try give a brief synopsis of each image and situation.

Here are a few of my favorites from 2016, in no particular order…
