My Ten Favorite Photos of 2014
It's that time of the year when I look back at all the photos I have made throughout the year and try and pick out a few of my favorites. I managed to get out on a lot of trips this year took quite a few photos along the way, so it's been difficult for me to pick out just a couple. I hope you enjoy the photos I've chosen. Please feel free to leave me comments on my selections below.
Blue Lake Sunrise
I went on an amazing backpacking trip to the Blue Lakes in the San Juan Mountains this summer and managed to catch some nice wildflowers and a great reflection of Wolcott Mountain at sunrise next to the lower Blue Lake.
After the Storm
After spending two days in The Maze District of Canyonlands National Park over the Memorial Day weekend, we were treated to this amazing sunrise from the Maze Overlook on our third day before heading back home.
Squaw Park View
A different view of the well-known Fisher Towers this past spring as I explored the Squaw Park area just east of Arches National Park. The late afternoon storm moving through the area added a nice mood to the scene.
Mount Sopris Dawn
Light Around the Bend
A sunset in Gray Copper Gulch that I didn't think was going to happen. There was a small enough gap in the clouds on the horizon that produced these colors at sunset during a stormy evening in the San Juan Mountains.
Molar Rock and Angel Arch at sunrise during a backpacking trip through Salt Creek Canyon in the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park. I've wanted to visit this arch for many years and was glad to finally reach that goal this year.
Since I always seem to have a difficult time choosing only ten of my favorite photos from the year, here are a few runners-up that just missed making the top ten in 2014. Enjoy!
Dry Hollow Sunset
Fall in Ute Canyon
I've had this photo of Ute Canyon in the Colorado National Monument on my mind for a couple of year now and was finally able to pull it off this past fall.
Calf Creek Falls Detail
Grand Mesa Colors
During the year I try to keep track of all my favorite photos by adding them to a Flickr album as I upload them. You can check out my full album of favorites here to see which others didn't make this list:

This is a wonderful collection of photos, Randy. You also motivate me to get out more and experience the southwest, so thank you for that inspiration, too. Squaw Park View and Storm Light are probably my favorites among a very nice collection of images. Cheers for a happy, healthy 2015.
I love your photos and enjoy following your travels on Diane's FB. Awesome job!
