Some of my favourite photographs of the year

Hope everyone has had or is having a wonderful Christmas. It’s a great time to be with family and friends and share what’s been good about the year just gone.

I bought my new camera (Olympus OMD EM10) in early May, not having had an SLR of any sort since I stopped using my trusty old Canon A1 35mm film camera around a decade ago. So this year has been the beginning of a process of relearning my photography, trying to come to grips with the many controls of the new camera, and being inspired by my many friends and colleagues who share both their photography and their extraordinary knowledge via blogs and Instagram.

I sorted through some of my favourite Tasmanian shots for the year and put them into a calendar using an online service and have been giving them to my family and friends as Christmas – New Year gifts, and they seem to quite like them.

I thought I’d share the shots here with you. Some have probably appeared in previous posts, but these are the bakers dozen from the year that stood out to me.

A safe and prosperous 2016 to you all!
