I’m finally done! I’ve compiled my favorite photos taken during 2022.
After reviewing my photos from the year and pulling out some of the best ones, I felt disappointed. There wasn’t much there. Significantly fewer than the previous two years. In the end, I had fewer than 40 photos. Compare that with the 329 selected from 2021. Not only were there far fewer last year, but nothing stood out over the others. No incredible aurora, building fires, phenomenal light displays, or newborn Dall sheep or foxes or moose with their mothers. No peregrine falcons staring me down or F-35s with vapor cones. Saying 2022 was a lull year for me, and my photography is an understatement.
But I’m not one to lie in defeat for long. The reason this post took so long for me to publish was that I wanted to first write about “photographer’s block.” It’s not the first time I’ve had trouble finding the motivation to shoot. So I wrote a bit about what I’ve done and what I’m doing to turn things around as a supplement to my 2022 photo highlights.
If you want to read more about finding motivation, or need some motivation yourself, check out my article Breaking The Block – Things to do when inspiration isn’t there. Despite all this, I’m still very happy with a few photos taken in 2022. So, without further adieu, I give you thirteen of my favorites from last year, in no particular order.
