Adams Dozen for 2018

Filed under: Adams Dozen — Frank @ 1:00 PM

This post represents the eighth annual installment in my “Adams Dozen” tradition. Whereby, as each year ends, I choose a dozen of my favorite photographs from the past year.

In the first installment of this series, I stated that choosing twelve photographs was “not as hard as I thought it might be”. However, it is my impression that the selection becomes more difficult each year. I do not have a clue why this seems so, but I struggled this year to narrow the group down to just a dozen.

I could have filled out my selection just using photos from our trip to the Grand Canyon and other places in the southwest but I worked to pick images from throughout the year. The first of this set was made back in January and the last two about six weeks ago in mid-November.

Without further ado, here are the twelve photographs, representing roughly one-percent* of my “keepers” for the year:

* For those who are keeping track, my Lightroom catalog says that I made 10,733 exposure this year. Of that number I finalized 1542 (about 14%) of them. The former number is a bit lower than it has been in the past (the average for the five previous years is about 13,800) and the latter number is a bit higher than usual (again the average for the past five years is 10.7%).

  1. Quite a varied selection here. The National Parks shots were among my favorite. That Grange Hall does look familiar – think I have seen it somewhere. I did complete my 2018 Baker’s Dozen which affords me an extra choice. Slow year with the camera as only 2400 clicks were registered on my camera for this year! Still not an easy process to whittle it down to thirteen.

    Thanks for sharing this. . .
