Here we are again at the end of another year. And as has been customary for the past many years I have selected some of my personal favorite photographs from the current year, 2021.
These images aren’t in any particular order, but they do show some of where I’ve been this year and the scenes that gave me a feeling of peace, or a sense of excitement.
I hope you all enjoy them as well!
“Atmospheric Engagement” A very calm and peaceful start to sunset. The horizon in the distance is almost invisible and the clouds above seem to be hovering heavily over Lake Michigan!
“Sun Going Down on Me” One last look at sunset on Lake Michigan in summer. High above the beach on the stairs I was observing the golden glow making everything shine and placing the trees in silhouette!
“Pittsburgh Scenic View 5” On a beautiful late evening in Pittsburgh, I stayed watching the cable car go up and down Duquesne Incline. Such a gorgeous summer scene of this fabulous city!
“Sunset Upon Colchester Ontario” Deep orange and gold hues in the sky and over Lake Erie as the sun set in Colchester, Ontario!
“On A Quiet Marsh Morning” I enjoyed many hours along the Marsh Boardwalk at Point Pelee National Park in Ontario this year. The lush green aquatic plants, beautiful clouds, and peaceful sounds of the new day were very special!
“Point Pelee Marsh A New Day” Another fabulous morning looking out at the boardwalk and marshland at Point Pelee National Park during summer!
“One Day At A Time” I really enjoyed this sunrise on a warm late summer morning in Colchester, Ontario on Lake Erie.
“Point Pelee Endless Skies and Sand” I enjoyed many days at Point Pelee National Park this year, and one of my favorite things was to experience the ever changing view both of and from the tip of Point Pelee.
“Swiftly Moves the Storm 2” Strong current and heavy storm clouds when a early autumn rain storm passes by on Lake Erie.
“Take A Walk With Me” We had a late but amazing fall color season in Michigan this year. The maple trees put on quite a show!
“Winter Wonderland Dream” Who doesn’t love a winter wonderland! This was a particularly inviting scene to me with the snow laden branches in dark contrast to the water, as well as the slight glow of a morning sunrise!
I hope that all of you have a very happy New Year, and that 2022 gives you plenty of adventure, enjoyment, good times, and most of all to stay healthy while enjoying whatever it is that you love to do!
Peace and Kindness to all,

A very nice set of photos, Rachel — and very much in your own style and with your own subjects. Thanks for putting it together! (blog more often!;-) All the best for 2022 to you, and hopefully many more photo opportunities.
I really appreciate that Alex! I know I have not kept up with my blog nearly as well as I would have liked. I hope this year has been treating you well and continues to do so! 🙂
Wonderful work as usual, Rachel! Happy New Year!
Many thanks Bob! Sorry for such a late reply, Happy New year to you as well!
Enjoyed your images this year Rachel! Enhanced, of course, by the increased Canadian content. 😉 Ironically, I think my favourite would be “Pittsburgh Scenic View 5”.
Thanks so much Michael, yep that is ironic lol! I did also really enjoy the views of Pittsburgh this year! 🙂
Great images! I would love you to the roundup of photographers’ top images of 2021 over at photographyandtravel.com (like what Jim Goldstein used to do up until a couple years ago). Here is a link to the submission form if you are willing. Thanks.
Thanks very much Brent. I wish I had seen this sooner. I hope you do the roundup again next year. I appreciate the effort!
