Top 10 Travel Photos: 2017

Geyser Basin Milky Way and Meteor

Geyser Basin Milky Way and Meteor – Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

This year was another productive one for landscape and night photography, with some nice results produced from Death Valley, California to Yellowstone, Wyoming.  Some of the nicer results produced from trips taken in prior years included results from several trips to Utah.  Two upgrades I made during the year that helped recover more results included Lightroom 6 and Photomatix 6.  See my recent post “Why Do Your Fall Images Look Better This Year?” for more on that.  I successfully avoided camera upgrades, but soon I’ll take critical looks at the latest Canon and Nikon models.
