I couldn’t feel luckier if I won the lottery. Over the past year I have been able to travel to some incredible places and experience a countless number of “once in a lifetime” moments. Through it all, I have also been lucky enough to take a whole lot of pictures. Although I am far too lazy to figure out just how many photos I’ve taken in 2011, I would estimate that number to be around about 10,000, possible much more. That being said. Choosing just a handful of photos was almost impossible. Rather than giving truly my favourite photos of the year, I have given you a snapshot of some of my favourites following a timeline. It would have been easy for me to add 20 images from Antactica and 10 from the Galapagos but I wanted to spread the wealth out a bit. Instead you’ll find 48 images from around 20 counties and 3 different continents. I hope you enjoy, and would love to hear from you which one is your favourite.
