It's that time of year again and time to share my favorite photos from 2012. Limiting it to 10 is hard, so I decided to do a top 12 of 2012. It just sounded right. This past year, I've upgraded my camera, started playing around with macro photos and video and most importantly, discovered that one of my favorite photo subjects are scuba divers in gear, above water.
There are definitely less underwater photos this year as I spent more time exploring the world of air. I'm hoping that next year I'll have more underwater photos to share, but I'm also excited about all the new adventures above water that 2013 has in store for me. Let me know which one of these is your favorite in the comments. Without further ado, here are my favorites of 2012, in no particular order:
Rusting gears and fall leaves, Sugar Pine Railroad, Fish Camp, CA
Shortfin Mako shark off La Jolla, CA.
Tech diver Charlie after a dive to the dive site named Murray Head, 170 feet deep off La Jolla Shores, CA.
