Top Ten Photos of 2014

   2014 was an exceptional year... in the Spring I took a solo trip to the deserts of the Southwest, a place that continues to call me back time and time again. I spent time shooting remote slot canyons of the Arizona desert, as well as some more well known landscapes in southern Utah. In the late summer, I spent an incredible week in the Pacific Northwest. The Pacific Northwest is arguably the most diverse area in the United States. Lush rainforest and countless waterfalls; rugged coasts lined with cliffs and seastacks; the high desert; wildflower-laden valleys; and glaciers along some of the country's highest mountain peaks - all within just a few hundred miles of one another.
