|Rob's Return: Currently ranked #3 shot of all time. London Eye Pod is #1, Sky Canola is #2.
Shot at Rosen Lake in Aug. Only shot from the top 12 to get it's own blog post.
|Taken just mintures after Rob's Return, Water Radish ranks #6 on my all time list. The only other picture from 2014 to break the top 10 of my +7000 pictures on flickr|
|On Lake Minnewanka: Taken in March in Banff. My top 3 shots are all lake shots. Hmmm|
|Shale @ 1500km: as the title suggests, taken at the 1500km mark for biking this year. Was coming down a logging road near lake Rosen. Same weekend as #1 & #2. It was a good weekend.|
|Tram Into Rainbow Mist: Jasper Sky Tram shot during an inversion. Clear sky above us, clouds below created the rainbow effect.|
|Heading Down at 700km: taken while descending from the Highwood Pass just before it opened for traffic in May. My top #6 were all taken in mountain regions. Flickr also seems to like clouds, mountains and roads.|
|Rosen Lake Morning (Ultra Wide): Taken in the same batch as #1 & #2, and the same weekend as #4. Like I said good weekend. Also, mountains, lake & clouds.|
|Sea of Clouds: Clouds looking like a large lake. Mountains in the distance. How could it not be on the list?
Shot in Jasper during the same inversion as Tram into Rainbow Mist.
|Stand Out: Siwash Rock taken while biking the Stanley Park Seawall in Vancouver. Reminds me of the Hopewell Flower Pots in NB.
Clouds, mountains, path: check!
|Millrise Inukshuk: a neighbour created this Inukshuk from the compacted ice that he scraped off his sidewalk.
Given it was taken in Calgary, it breaks the mountain region streak. Still in tone it fits with many of the images to make the list.
The ice/water/water vapour (clouds) theme holds.
My only Calgary shot to make the list this year.
|Waiting to Cross: a grizzly bear waiting to cross the Icefields Parkway. Technically a horrible shot. I was getting dark and the settings were from an hour or so ago. Looked black on the camera, but it's amazing what software can do.
Tonally it breaks the 2014 theme, but it has a grizzly! It was taken in the mountains. so that holds.
|Maligne Lake & Mt Charlton: from our visit to Jasper. Also a good weekend. As it produced four of the top twelve shots.
Clearly a return to the lake & mountains theme.
