Best Photos of 2018

It is now more than halfway through 2019, and I realized I never posted a “Best Photos” post for 2018. I guess I’ve been busy. Each year I create a “Best Photos” album for the year in Flickr. Here is the album I created for 2018:

The Best of 2018

That album has 20 photos in it. For the purposes of this post, I’m narrowing it down to six photos.

They are:

Michigan Trip - May 2018 - The Flowers of Mackinac Island
The is a beautiful garden of flowers I photographed on Mackinac Island in Michigan. The garden was near the Grand Hotel.

Duluth Superior Trip - April 2018 - MV Stewart J Cort Arrives in Superior
The MV Stewart J. Cort arriving via the Superior Entry. The ice is still a factor as it was taken in April.

AirExpo 2018 - Corsair!
My friend John Sinclair piloting the F4U-5 Corsair from the Wings of the North Air Museum during the 2018 AirExpo at Flying Cloud Field in Eden Prairie.

A Portrait - Watson the Golden - Sit!
My Golden Retriever Watson mugging for the camera. This photo made Flickr’s “Explore” page and is one of my most favorited photos on Flickr.

Duluth Trip - July 2018 - Lift Bridge on the 5th of July
The fireworks from July 5, 2018 in Duluth. They shoot them over the Duluth Harbor and I photographed them with the Duluth Lift Bridge framing them.

Michigan Trip - May 2018 - Sand Point (Escanaba) Lighthouse
I had to include at least one lighthouse. This is the Sand Point Lighthouse in Escanaba, MI. This is one of seven lighthouses I photographed when my wife and I took a trip to the upper peninsula of Michigan in May of 2018.
