New Year, New Start

Okay, so I obviously didn't make it all the way to the end of the year. But we have a new year ahead of us and I'm going to try again. The whole point is to keep trying and hopefully improve my photography in the process.  I did learn a lot last year and hope to do even better in the next. I wanted to have one last post this year and just post a few of the images that I really like.  Here they are.

Here are a couple of the girls just out in our backyard.

This one I was working more on some macro photography. That is an area I would like to do more in.

We went out driving one night and I captured a couple of different views of this sunset.

Some of my family members were nice enough to let me practice on them this summer. These are a few shots of my nephews. What a handsome bunch.

 Even though the sun was getting a little high at this point and the light wasn't as good, I love this picture of the boys. It shows their their personalities so well.

Trying my hand at some action shots at the Tour of Utah this year. I love this one because I didn't realize until after I was looking through the photos that I had captured this one of George Hincapie. We've followed him in cycling for a long time and I was thrilled to have gotten this.

On our trip to Oregon this year, we stopped at the Portland temple on our way home. These are some of the images I took.

I took this one fall morning. The light was so pretty and the leaves had finally started to drop from our tree in the front yard.

This is my newest niece. Her parents were kind enough to let me try my hand at infant photography.  It's a lot harder than it looks. She was so alert and those big beautiful eyes are so amazing.

The Christmas season is not complete without an ornament shot.

There you have it. Come back January 1st and see what I can come up with. As always, comments and feedback are appreciated.
