My 2017 in photos

As is the tradition now, I'll join in by posting twelve of my favourite images from 2017 which represent my year. Not one per month but a good spread that covers from the first days of January to boxing day.

2017 was maybe the most photographically varied year of my life, mostly due to the amount of travelling and other things I've done - trips to Edinburgh, Japan, Aragón in the north-east of Spain, my first ever music festival and a trip in a hot-air balloon... I also shot quite a bit of film as well as digital, and I hope that my photographic and post-processing skills have improved too over the last trip around the sun.

So picking just twelve images from such a year was extremely difficult, but I think they represent my year fairly well. I've put them in (more-or-less) chronological order, so that they tell the story of my year (at least for me).

I hope 2018 is as productive, and we kicked it off with 11 days in Italy, which is not a bad start. I have my fingers crossed to manage a short trip to Paris (photographic heaven??) in February too.

An enjoyable set - will look at these in more detail when at home

I love the top and bottom ones

Nice selection. I like number 9 and 7, but the stand out one for me is the first. Critically focused and super DOF

A very good and varied selection from a productive year of photography. I envy your travel opportunities which you exploited to the full. If you get to Paris and if you like modern architecture you will find a visit to La Defense rewarding.

This lot is wonderful. And the last one more so.

Many thanks everyone.

I went out to La Defense the last time I was in Paris (having not had time the first time) but the arch was almost entirely covered in scaffolding. I did get some interesting distance shots of the city from there though, especially the original Arc.
