Looking Back on 2013

As the year draws to a close, I have been reviewing the images I made in the last twelve months. Here are my favourite photographs from 2013.

The images selected here were made in Liberia, India, China, England, Scotland, Denmark, Bahrain and the U.S.A using a range of cameras: a Nikon D700 SLR, a Nikon D800 SLR, a Sony Alpha NEX-7 mirrorless camera, a Fujifilm X-E2 mirrorless camera, and an iPhone 4. Different places, different cameras, different subject matter – but what they have in common is that all were shot in 2013.

If there are any you particularly like or dislike – or if there’s one I’ve overlooked and should have included – I’d like to hear from you, so please drop me a line or leave a comment below.

Here’s wishing you a peaceful Christmas and I’ll see you in the new year!
