My Best Photos of 2019
Well, 2019 is in the books, so it's time for my annual Best Of post, where I share my 25 best photos from the year. You can view my best of 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, and 2014. As always, 2019 presented me with a bevy of photographic opportunities, so it was hard to whittle it down to just 25. You may recognize some of these photos from my Best of the Decade series. Without further ado, here they are, in chronological order!

The Lion Sleeps Tonight: February 19
In February I took a sunny trip to Walt Disney World where the weather was beautiful and every day was magical.

Until then, I'm quite happy with this photo.
