My best photographs of 2012

2 01 2013

Early in 2012 I decided I would carry a camera with me everywhere.

To that end, I carried one of three Canon point-and-shoot cameras with me almost  all of the time.

Remarkably, more than half of my favorite photographs from 2012 are from the Canon point and shoot cameras, mostly the S95 and the G12. My experiment to carry a point and shoot camera with me at all times proved to me that Louis Pasteur spoke to many disciplines when he said:

In the fields of observation chance favors only the prepared mind.”

For what else are we as photographers but observers hell-bent on capturing what Henri Cartier Bresson called  “the decisive moment.” A baker’s dozen of my favorite  images from 2012.

Historic Celestial Events

Image

It was a good year to look skyward with a camera. The annular solar eclipse crossed through southern Utah and we observed this amazing phenomenon from a campsite in Snow Canyon near St. George. A less dramatic  partial lunar eclipse followed just a few weeks later and was easily viewed in downtown Salt Lake City. The very rare transit of Venus across the face of the sun finished up an incredible couple weeks of historical celestial events. Just a note on the transit: Salt Lake City was unfortunately covered with clouds during the transit which lasted hours. Luckily, though I was prepared for full sunlight and to shoot the transit with a solar filter on my  300mm f2.8 lens and a 2X teleconverter, I was able to use the natural filtering of the fast moving clouds to capture what I believe was an even more stunning image of the ultra rare event. CANON G12, NIKON D300 70-200mm zoom with 1.4 converter, NIKON D300 300mm f2.8 TC20E converter.
