Best of 2016 (Part 1)

Its that time of the year where I start to look through the hundreds of photos taken and published during the many sessions I have had around Kent and out of the county. This has probably been the most successful year I have had with the camera and through hours of studying, patience and a bit of luck, I managed to take a good number of pleasing shots. Every photo taken has its own story to me. Some just a bit of good timing through to planned shots which took quite a while to set up and get. I have looked through a lot of them and have chosen 16 photos which still give me a lot of pleasure to view. I will post 8 shots at a time and will then ask viewers of this blog to vote for their favorite shot I have taken this year. Thanks for looking and I hope you get as much pleasure as I did taking them.

  2. With your shots Marc we could get an awful lot of series of 8. Not easy working out which shots to re-post I guess.

    1. Thanks Bob. I could probably post loads as I think there are quite a few I have taken this year. Just nice to look back through them and remember those warm sunny days.

  5. They're all magnificent, but #3 (the dewy Banded Demoiselle) is my favourite from this batch.
