A selection of my favourite landscape photographs from 2009

Sev­eral of my favourite Alberta land­scape pho­tog­ra­phers have been post­ing small gal­leries of their past year’s best land­scape pho­tographs, so I decided to do the same. It was fun to look back through a year’s worth of pho­tos, and impos­si­ble to decide which were my “favourite”. I decided to pick one favourite photo from each of the loca­tions in Alberta that I reg­u­larly make pho­tographs includ­ing: Jasper National Park, Water­ton National Park, and the Ice­fields Park­way in the Rocky Moun­tains; and Min­is­tik Lake Game Bird Sanc­tu­ary, White­mud Ravine, Gold Bar Park, and the Strath­cona Sci­ence Park closer to my home in Edmonton.

I’ve posted all of the pho­tos below as a group (in chrono­log­i­cal order) but I will also cre­ate a sep­a­rate entry for each photo to pro­vide extra details about the image like I usu­ally do — just click on the link below each photo to go to it’s detail page. (It will take me a lit­tle while to get them all up)

I hope you enjoy this small col­lec­tion, and I do always appre­ci­ate it if you leave a com­ment with your thoughts or reac­tion. Happy New Year, and I wish you many fine pho­tographs in 2010!
