25 Favorite Shots from the 1st Year of Travel

As we begin our second year of travel we are looking back to the great experiences of the first. We were asked to choose some favorite photos for a travel presentation and we ended with about 160. Since many of you were not with us from the very start we thought you might enjoy the best 25. Paring them down was a challenging task, but it has given us some great remembrances and a renewed appreciation of the power locked inside the little iPhone 7 Plus.Sunrises in mornings can make getting up early really worth it.

The panorama feature is really rewarding for capturing the grandeur of the special landscapes. There are so many spectacular beaches and many we had all to ourselves. We never wish for clear skies as we find that clouds are a blessing on the beach, not just to lessen the fierceness of the sun, but to add drama to the photograph. It is pretty hard to shoot a good sunset without fancy equipment, but sometimes you get lucky and the colors turn out spectacular. The man made marvels can be breathtaking too, from ancient structures…to more newer ones. No need to lock yourself in a darkroom anymore, just switch to a B&W filter when editing your shots. Real people give scale and drama to architecture. People working the land with their hands is an endlessly fascinating subject. Let’s not forget their animals!And our close relatives amongst them. The mountains high and low challenge our sense of adventure. But probably nothing more than a sail and rudder. On a riveror on the sea sailing towards new adventures.
