It's an interesting exercise looking through all of the photos that I published during the year with the goal of selecting what I considered to be my top 10 images of the year. I didn't manage to select only 10; like last year, 13 photos jumped at me.
I'm happy with a "top 13". In date sequence, here are my favorites from 2014.
orchids in bright pink and yellow

rocks, green, trees, ocean... at the tip of the Eastport Peninsula
water, clouds, landforms... at the tip of the Eastport Peninsula
