I have to thank Jim Goldstein for the idea of sharing a look at my favourite photos from the previous year. Every year, for six years now, Jim invites photographers to participate in his “Best Photos” project.

I’ve picked my Top 8+1 Favourite Images of 2012. Again, why eight (actually eight plus one) and not nine or ten? I’ve got more favourite photos from the last year but because usually I’m travelling a lot in October – December and therefore I’ve got quite a few photos haven’t uploaded to my website yet and I still have to show them in the next couple of months. Also I need to say about “plus one” image – the very last photo in the list – Total Solar Eclipse in Cairns, Australia. This is definitely not my “best” image. Anyone can make it if you happen to be at the right place and at the right time. But I love this photo. I was waiting for that event for quite a while and I enjoyed every second of that moment. It was absolutely spectacular. Therefore I included it in the list as well. So please have a look at the small set and I hope you enjoy these photos as well.

PS. If you click on each photo you’ll get to the bigger version.
