2016 was a very good year!

December 28, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Ever since I was in high school, maybe even middle school, at the end of the year I have made some quiet time with a cup of tea and Mom's molasses cookies to reflect on the year just passed. Those cold, gray winter days are perfect for slowing down, thinking, dreaming, planning and reviewing.  Looking back I usually I find I have accomplished a little more than I give myself credit for. It helps me redefine my interests, goals and ambitions and gives me hope and inspiration to go forward in the new year. Do you do the same? I highly recommend it.

This year I decided to create a gallery of my favorite photos from 2016 and even went back to 2015 and did the same. If you'd like to take a look, here is the link. http://www.lighttouchphotos.com/favorites

My top 5, ok 6, images of 2016 are below. In all six I was really in the moment, in the flow, and thoughtfully created each one. I was working with the muse! It definitely is team work!

"The impact of Angela’s image is immediate. You can feel the rushing water dragging past the edge of the stone as if to coax the few remaining leaves to abandon their perch and ride the current downstream. One of the characteristics that makes photographer an artist is the ability to look at a large visual panorama and decide exactly what to put into the frame and, just as important, what to leave out.
Angela has done a great job placing the rocks edge on a diagonal taking up about a third of the frame. The swift water creates a wonderful abstract of reflection and complimentary colors. The remaining leaves on the solid surface lend the only hint to reality and allow us to interpret what we are looking at. Angela has a fantastic “eye” and is able to find these small treasures in the landscape."
