    Default Your best picture of 2018

    I want to see your best (single) photo from 2018, cycling related or otherwise.

    Here's mine. The family and I spent a little over a week in Montana with a trip to Bowman Lake in GNP being the clear highlight:

    Curiously, as someone whose strength has been more in landscape photography, all my best ones this year were of people (my kids, a couple great weddings, etc), which I'm not inclined to share here.

    However, I did snap this one up in Shenandoah this spring, and printed it out 24x36" and am pretty pleased with it.

    PS- that is a tremendous shot, BB.

    my name is Matt

    I submit two for your consideration:

    From PMC weekend - Saturday night at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy after the band called it quits and much of the crowd turned in for the night...


    From a Sunday AM ride this past fall...


    Both straight outta the iPhone, no filters, etc.

    I didn't find any really great photos in my Flickr this year, but this one fairly well captures mornings in Miami. Particularly how calm everything is before all the crazies wake up.

    If I can only pick one this was the highlight, taken at the World Cycling Championships men's professional race. It was a great trip and we clearly had fantastic weather.

    This may be one of my all time favorite pictures. This is my USNA Midshipman son and a man named RV Burgin. RV is 96 and was a WW2 Marine in the Pacific Island Campaign. He fought on Peleliu and Okinawa, received a Silver Star and two Purple Hearts. I grew up around RV and we all knew he was a Marine in WW2 but he never talked about it. It wasn't until Tom Hanks and others started interviewing Pacific Campaign Veterans for the mini series The Pacific that he started telling his story. He was portrayed in the miniseries in the character "Burgie". He met his wife while on liberty in Australia and brought her to the US after the war. He lost her a few years ago and a stroke has taken his ability to speak, but his mind is still razor sharp and he communicates through writing and head nods. It would be incredible if he lived another 4 years to be my son's first salute when he graduates from the Naval Academy.

    The family took a Christmas 2017/18 trip to India. This teacher was on the steps of the Ganges River in the holy city of Varnasi giving out blessings.

    So many fun pics this year. But this one really stands out to me. I saw this puddle on a pre work ride but didn't have the right lens for the pic. So I went back the next morning and got it.

    I've really gotten into a rut of shooting with the iPhone-only, primarily because most of my photography is while out riding. Anyway, I was pretty pleased with this one (taken with a real camera, so....)

    Taken while in Reno NV. We were on approach to a 5 day stay in So Lake Tahoe with friends to participate in the Sept Tour de Tahoe. The vent ride was good, time spent with friends and shared meals was what makes life worth living.....

    This is a nice one Evan. If you don't know the name already, I think you might find the work of Robert Adams inspirational.

    What is great about this thread is that it made me go back and look through the 2018 photos and remember the year's adventures.
    It was tough to pick one, but here it is - it represents a common ride for me, down to the coast to take a look, then on with the rest of the ride. Between the sky, clouds, water, sun light, and weather something always different.

    2018 had some great moments, as our three kids graduated from high school, college and graduate school and we had a sad event, as we lost my Dad in April. This pic was from a Fall bike trip where my wife and I spent a few days riding in Cuyahoga Valley National Park around the time of our wedding anniversary. Empty nesters trying to learn how to take it easy.
