2012… Taking Time To Enjoy the View

It’s important in photography to keep pushing yourself to try new things… to keep moving forward.  Walt Disney once said, “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” It’s also important every now and then to stop and appreciate how far you’ve travelled on the journey. It’s important to take a moment and appreciate where the new paths have led. It’s important to stop, take a look around and enjoy the view. Here’s a baker’s dozen of images I created in 2012. Are they my best images of 2012? Are they my most popular images? I don’t know and frankly I don’t care. They are personal mile markers for me on this wonderful journey called photography…

    As you’ve perhaps heard, I’m the son of pioneer landscape photographer Philip Hyde, who was a student and teaching associate of Ansel Adams and Edward Weston and helped make more national parks and wilderness than any other photographer. I mention this for readers who don’t know me, but more importantly, because I hope that when I say you have a superb eye, you take it in. It’s not a throwaway compliment. You are talented, man. I am having a hard time narrowing it down but I suppose I will say that I like the leaf best, the floating vapor, the exploding colosseum and the shapes under the sun. Honorable mention goes to the tree trunks in the forest.

    I had no idea your work was so diverse. I particularly like the one that looks like smoke and the one with the lone tree and the sun behind it.
