Well, it is New Year’s Eve, 2018. This has been a fairly busy year with some personal growth and certainly a few “firsts” for me relative to photography. I co-led my two annual photography workshops this year with my pals, Martin Radigan and Vern Pattterson. This was the third year for our Spring, and Fall, West Virginia landscape workshops and we had some great clients and photographers join us as we traipsed around the West Virginia Highlands.
I also pre-scouted the route of my 2019 Fall In Iceland Photography Workshop and Tour. This was an 11 day, all camping expedition with my friend Adam Holston that saw us completely circumnavigate the island as we tested out different routes and looked for new areas to bring our participants. We have a great tour planned so if you are thinking about Iceland, then come on and join us. This trip had some real firsts for me including photographing the annual Icelandic sheep round-up, known as the réttir; an incredible hike out onto Breiðamerkurjökull to see ice calving into Jölkúsarlón glacial lagoon; and finally, I saw my first aurora.
You can read about the sheep round up, known in Iceland as the réttir on my blog here:

As I move into 2019 I am continuing to work on my craft as well as expanding my processing capabilities. Plus this year I will lead my first workshop to Iceland, a country rich in cultural heritage and unmatched in beauty. This in addition to our annual West Virginia workshops.
So with all of that I present a few of my favorite images from this year. It was hard to pick and there are a few personal favorites shot locally as well as a cadre of shots from Iceland and around West Virginia. And as you can tell its not the traditional 12, or bakers dozen. The gallery of favorites actually includes 36 images, or 37 counting the lead in image, in color and black and white. The set includes waterfalls, landscapes, architecture, bridges, barns, sunsets, long exposures, and even an Icelandic horse. So, please enjoy and I appreciate all of you who have subscribed to this website and look forward to bringing you more images in the coming year. Happy New Year everyone!
