Jim Goldsteain 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.
