Every year at Jim Goldstein invites his readers to his blog project.
... to list the years best photos from my readers and social media followers. I've run this blog project every year since 2007 and each year I've been blown away by the quality of images and the number of participants. This year I will be collecting participants details via this form. If you're a new participant you can see past years results.
Here are my favourite images from 2017. I wanted to narrow these down to 10 but ... I just couldn't. All of these images have special significance for me. They are not technically great images but they are the ones with the most emotional impact.

I am honored to be featured in these excellent pictures. Wishing you were here to film the eagles this morning. They are all over the place.

Did I ever send you copies of the bonfire images?
Alas, my DSLR fell to the floor and the mirror reflex mechanism is broken. My picture taking is currently limited to my iPhone 7. However, I did rent a camera for the holiday weekend.
Nathan Buck22nd December 2017 at 11:45 AM
I don't think you sent bonfire pictures. I would like to see them.
Khürt Williams22nd December 2017 at 12:29 PM
Ok. I'll send you a link over the weekend.
