I have been primarily a landscape shooter. I seem to favor dark, moody images, and my top 20 reflected that "bias". I did have a couple of pictures from an engagement shoot that I did for some students, and some wildlife work. There was even some Z6 work in that elite selection. But in the end I had to honor the images that moved me the most and that affected my enjoyment the most.

When dust, harvest and smoke collide.
I was out shooting with my son. It was very smoky (forest fires all over the West) there was dust from the wheat harvest on the Palouse and we saw grain truck drive down this road towards the setting sun, stirring up clouds. We stopped, pulled out our gear and fired of a few on this beautiful, if hellish, scene. View attachment 1668750

Tyne Cot Cemetery near Ypres, Belgium, is the largest Commonwealth cemetery in the world, almost 12,000 buried here, with the names of another 35,000 men whose remains were never found. We were there at sunset, which made the place even more poignant!
