Top Photos of 2011 by Gary Crabbe / Enlightened Images

Here’s a collection of some of my top photos shot in 2011. (I’ve posted thirteen, because in our house, it’s a lucky number; both our kids were born on a 13th.)

    Beautiful images, Gary–what a year! I don’t necessarily have a favorite, but I’d have to say the cinder cone in Lassen is right up there, as is the Cloud’s Rest sunset…I love that view of the Cathedral Range…

    Happy New Year, and best wishes for a prosperous 2012…

  14. Rosh Sillars Says:

    Wow, what an excellent collection of images. I’d would be happy with just one from 2011. Happy new year and I’m looking forward to your 2012′s images.

  15. Steve Sieren Says:

    What a very powerful and inspiring series of images Gary. I’m sure you will do all over again in 2012! Wish you the best in the new year!

  16. David Leland Hyde Says:

    An admirable group of photographs, Gary. I like the Cathedral Range from Cloud’s Rest best followed by Battery Point Lighthouse, Tahoe Keys and Berry Creek Falls. You’re pictures make it seem that you find nature at its best everywhere you go, but I know that isn’t always the case from reading your well-written adventures on your blog. I’ve enjoyed both this year. Thank you.
