The question all bloggers face: To post blog posts of lists or not? On one hand, it’s a stale format and rather uninteresting. On the other hand, search engines seem to like lists and it does provide a structure that is easy to follow. I don’t intend to post a lot of lists here but I can’t help it this time. My belated list of my favorite photos from 2014:
A beam of sunlight next to a ladder in this reconstructed room in Mesa Verde National Park
I go back and forth between preferring photos from Antelope Canyon in B&W or color, I find both striking.
I loved the look of these plants outside Spruce Tree House in Mesa Verde National Park
Delicate Arch under the stars. After sunset is the best time to view this – when the crowds have left.
My favorite photo of the year. You’ve seen it here before. I love this shot and it happened just as we randomly happen across a street band.
The halls through Fort Jefferson are amazing. Years of water leaking through have started building these mounds you see.
These odd plants made for a great photo but the copious amounts of spiders making their webs between them made for less than ideal hiking.
Kyrgyzstan’s only true National Park, Altyn-Arashan is home to great hiking and phenomenal climbing.

The site of sanatorium dating back to Soviet days, Issyk-Ata in Kyryzstan is one of the most accessible and beautiful mountain areas from Bishkek.
So there it is, better late than never I suppose. 2014 turned out to be my favorite year ever for photography since we took two long road trips and moved to Kyrgyzstan. I’m definitely a person whose photography inspiration comes from travel so it was a great year! For 2015 I plan on exploring a lot more of this beautiful country as well as take three trips to Europe seeing another 8 or 9 countries. It should be an even better year!
