/ The best images that you have taken this year?
I like this one...the storm started rolling in as i was kitesurfing so made a quick decision to get out of the water.
Within 5-10 mins the clouds started to stream out like smoke:
I like this one .... http://alexekins.photoshelter.com/image/I0000zlDwG4Qs7P8
Oh, good fun. Likely change my mind tomorrow but I like these ones today;
It's been a funny year, photographically, but the two (sorry - but they were taken on the same day, in the same place!) that spring out for me are http://www.flickr.com/photos/c_j_d/7029287373/in/photostream and http://www.flickr.com/photos/c_j_d/7031831883/in/photostream
There's another from Cornwall too, but that'll have to wait till I'm at a computer not on my phone.
That's not from this year though.
I've got a load of stuff that I either haven't printed yet or haven't scanned. The choice of what's online is limited, but I like those two that I shared.
I'd say this one:
but there are a few weeks of 2012 left...
This is my favourite so far.
One of the few better ones for me this year:
Very nice. I saw Simon yesterday and we were wondering how you were.
There you go - a different sort of monkey: http://www.flickr.com/photos/c_j_d/8203156101/in/photostream (I forgot about these shots and this is perhaps my favourite from this year)
Are those boats on Mull? Seem to recall seeing something very similar between Craignure and Tobermory.
> Ominous clouds!
Indeed...especially if you are at sea attached to a huge kite!
In the end, however, it al came to nothing and just blew away with hardly a drop of rain
Doing well. Boys are growing up a bit fast mind.
Seems like ages since we went out for a stroll with a camera.
Yes they are. We were just ambling along in the van and went past these beauties - it would have been rude not to stop for a short while.
No PS, just LR. My image, my choice! That's the beauty of the big ship that is photography.
Aye we stopped for a look but that was the one day in our week on Mull when it was pouring with rain, so no photo.
I have taken quite a few so can't say exactly, but in the past few months I have been happy with these.
Kids at the station re-enacting evacuation
This because I very quickly realised I shouldn't be standing there, but managed to salvage something.
This because theRed Arrows are ace
This cos I rarely manage to get good saves
And this one because I thought I managed to capture something of Harry, veteran of D Day's character, despite clearly him doing most of the work for me :)
really like this one, and no idea why.
this is defiantly my second favorite.
unfortunately not much climbing related photography this year...
bit of a lack of photo inspiration this year. New years rsolution will have to be to get the camera out a bit more!
I like this: (Barre des Ecrins Summit Ridge,) https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/228421_10152057969410445_607833576_n.jpg

This photography forum and the galleries keep me coming back to this site
Not so many this year, although I took a couple I'm fairly happy with:
Possibly this one : http://www.flickr.com/photos/db91/6897022026/in/photostream/
or this : http://www.flickr.com/photos/db91/7692491546/in/photostream

This is my first year of having a "proper Camera" and I've really enjoyed it.
or it could be this one:-
I'm not sure, maybe you can tell me which one?
Damn - a lot of good stuff to go through up there - I don't think I've had a particularly productive year (not helped by the very premature 'death' of a new compact camera', one that I'd hoped to allow me to improve my 'on the hill' or 'on the route' shots), but here's the stuff I've felt 'better' about than the rest, organised roughly thematically, and the one's I've rated (as opposed to what other people have rated):
Absolutely the best of the bunch so far :-)
Though I reckon I'll change my mind in a few minutes... ;-)
Sometimes, but often extraordinary light can make an image look as though it's been over done in PP...for instance, this one looks to me almost HDR but it's more or less straight out of the camera!
more luck than anything else.
which is best?
Moved house twice this year and done a lot of DIY meaning that there was no photography for a 6+ month period :(
I am quite chuffed with this:
Unexpected arrival (I was cleaning lens), rapid departure, tricky light on the snow in full winter sun.
I like this one:
Because, well, normally a daisy is quite a boring flower. I like the isolation, but also the movement in the background whilst the daisy is dead still.
ps. I pretty much love most things on this thread. The main thing I like is the diversity of shots you all like as well as how good you all are at making the images!
i took a few on holiday in st ives in september; i put some in my gallery on here, but even those had a pretty tenuous connection to climbing....!
this thread has finally inspired me to register for a flickr account, here are a few of the ones i really couldn't justify being on ukc...
Some wonderful images, folks.
I've been lucky to get a few I quite like, mostly taken when paddling.
Frost on the banks of the River Arun
Painted skies, near Pangbourne
A bit flared-out in the background, but I like the ripple effect.
Canoe portage, Glen Affric
Glasslike water on Loch Beinn a' Mheadhoin
My favourites are this bunch of hookers fighting over a cigarette on the main red light street in Madrid.
I didn't get much of the fight because the brawl sprung from nowhere, just a bit of blurry hair-pulling...
Then a moment of tension as the girls all gather their post-brawl thoughts (this is the only decent photo really)...
Then the fuzz arrived to arrest the main perp, and the other hookers went off about their business...
I think you've unnecessarily over-saturated your own language there. Remember, this is a public forum with a wide diversity of readers (ie, ages!)
Bit more mountainous sort of thing here.
Some pleasing braided river action here.
And what's *she* doing in there?
That first one's amazing - how? What? And blimey, you're on Flickr!
And yes, the new century is starting to permeate.
> That first one's amazing - how? What?
It's The Angel of the South (Island), a transient installation :-)
Thank you, taken around 5 in the morning.
Here's mine - Bagging a frozen lake in BC, Canada
That, or a ski-mountaineering shot of Atwell peak
but to be honest that's not saying a lot. Not been my best year for photography.
