I engaged in a fun little exercise a few days ago, searching through all of the photos I took in 2008, looking for the 20 best photos of the year. I didn’t have any set criteria, rather this was a “I know it when I see it” situation.

Here are my choices; I hope you enjoy them!

(Of course, you can view much larger versions in my 20 Best of 2008 set at flickr.)
