    This is not only my favorite for 2018 but my favorite picture, period. I visited near my hometown in SW Colorado several times this summer and experienced clouds, rain, wind and even bears at this location. I knew I wanted to return for a fall foliage shot but that everything would have to come together--the leaves, the weather, the moon, and the one night I had in the area. Fortunately, it all did. I hope you enjoy the result.

    Lynda and I spent the evening overloing the Golden Gate Bridge while the camera's clicked away and we watched brightly lit barges and airplanes come by wondering if they were going to ruin the final picture. She knew a great location overloing the bay to get this image. The sun started to come up and we went for a nice breakfast in Sausalito in one of the only places that was open that early.

    “There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.” Backpacking and hiking to places where other have not visited was always a dream but thanks to Brad, Doug and Thomas i am able to fulfill my dreams. My interest has turned into a commitment and this is the result. This image is special to me as this was taken by over coming both mental and physical challenges and the forces of nature (Thunderstorms).

    Here is my photo for Best of 2018, not because of its quality, but because of the experience for Kendall, the "mo," on top of the RV. It was a completely unplanned shot, that happened between her 3 day backpack through the Tetons and her 24 hour Cowboy Tough Adventure Race.

    Mt. Rainier reflected on Reflection Lake, WA. It was fortunate that the rising moon started shedding the area nicely.

    Here's my favorite image of 2018 taken on the morning of March 23rd outside my B&B cabin in ta Junction, Alaska. This aurora display began at about 2:00am local, reaching a peak near 4:30am when the aurora danced with incredible beauty. Needless to say, the celestial show was too amazing to examine each image in "real time," but upon later examination this photograph really touched my spirit.

    This is my favorite night photo because of being able to hike up to the location and enjoy the beauty and quietness. The sheer magnitude of our surroundings was remarkable. It was a wonderful experience!! Thanks Brad! On a side note: My favorite day photo is of the field full of Indian Paintbrush with Mt Shasta in the background. The hummingbirds were feeding, then at dusk, some much larger birds were flying super close to us.

    Some weekends stand out a little than others. I enjoyed the marriage of two amazing friends, beheld mountain and meadow views, waded through meandering rivers, soaked in hot springs, talked loudly to bears that may or may not have been around the next bend, and meditated to the illumination of this waterfall by the harvest moon.
