Choosing my “Top Five” photos of the year is one of my favorite more recent traditions. Of course, if I’m honest, the “Top Five” always turns into six, because I can never totally limit myself!
The first of my favorite photos came early in the year, at the Missouri Botanical Garden’s Chinese Garden. Not only do I love the photo of the garden itself, I also love that is was covered in snow!
My next favorite photo is also from the Missouri Botanical Garden. The Climatron was lit up beautifully for the “Garden of Glass” exhibition, and I love the beautiful colors!
This picture from the Naper Settlement is beautiful to me both for the stunning green of the scenery, and for the women in period costume outside the log home:
Chickadee loves posing for pictures, and there was something special about her in her London shirt, holding an umbrella on a rainy day:
Back at the Missouri Botanical Garden for a lovely fall photo in the Japanese Garden during its 40th anniversary:
And a bonus picture of the Fab Five at St. Charles at Christmas Traditions…this is always one of my favorite spots for a family photo, and this year’s picture was especially amazing!
So there you have it…another year of my favorite photos. I can’t wait to see what kind of pictures I take next year!
