Favorite Landscape Pictures of 2017

I didn't get out as much in 2017 as I have in years' past -- growing a new human and taking care of the ten I already had engaged more than a little of my time and focus.  But then a Facebook memory came through of my 2016 favorites and I had to go through and see how many new favorites I had from this year.


My Top Fifteen (in no particular order):

This one is a bit of a cheat, as it is not actually my photo -- it was taken by my 13-year-old daughter.  Doesn't she have a great eye?

 
Utah Mountains and fields.

Spring blossoms!


Little quail are my favorite!

This was a stormy day over at Utah Lake.  I love the colors in the sky and the movement of the grass.



These are some of the first flowers in my garden each spring.  They are only about 3 inches high, but I think they are so 

More flowers from my garden.  Something about the light and the rose by the lavender makes this one of my favorites from the year, despite its simplicity.



This one is a panorama made from three pictures.  Our mountains were especially stunning this year. I couldn't narrow the fall color pictures down to just one.









I took this picture on the same day Sarah took the first one.  I love the subtle backlight on the grasses in the front and the movement and shape of the clouds. 


I love this guy's expression! 


Long-necked birds are so interesting.  This one was in the Florida Everglades -- a really cool place to visit!




I don't usually incorporate much man-made stuff into landscapes, but the sunrise one morning gave me the chance to take a picture of one of our favorite places -- the pool overlooking the ocean in Newport Beach. 


I'd love to know which ones are your favorites!

It's hard to pick just one but I love Utah mountains and fields and the last one before your Florida pictures. I recently moved to Utah (Cache Valley) and I am amazed every day how beautiful Utah is. In all the seasons!
