12 Favorites of 2012

Endangered Olive Ridley sea turtles hatch at dusk and head for the Pacific.  Costa Rica.

2012 was a busy and exciting year.  I learned a lot about photography by reading photo blogs, talking with friends, observing the work of experts, and attending workshops.  I also benefited from patient folks that showed me cool subjects, and held my flash.  I got some new tools, and some amazing travel opportunities.  There was also a lot of trial and error... in the last 365 days I took 12,256 frames.  Here is one image per thousand shots; 12 of my favorites from 12 months in 2012:
