2015 – A Year of Travel In 65 Color Photographs

2015 was a big year.  I started a brand new full time job in February which meant that my travel schedule changed quite a bit. I still had the opportunity to take some amazing trips and spent quite a bit of time exploring Copenhagen in greater depth. I also made it home to the US for the first time in two years for a road trip through Southwestern Colorado. In addition to these trips I also took a 19 day trip through Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand – however, that trip ended on December 29th, which means that while the photos were taken in 2015, they’ll be included in my 2016 roundup as I’ve got about 150 GB of photos to sort through! In 2015 I also upgraded from my Canon 600D to a Canon 6D which brought with it exciting new opportunities but also some growing pains.

I do light editing in Adobe Lightroom. You can see the specific settings each image was taken at via the EXIF data on flickr. I’m also always happy to answer questions.

  1. Nice selection. I liked the Speicherstadt shot the best, minimal but very dramatic.
    Bob R recently posted..Saturday’s Portrait: a Juvenile Magellanic Penguin

    • Thanks Bob! Yeah that’s one of my absolute favorites as well! Great spot and so happy with how it turned out in both color and B&W.

  2. Amazing pictures you had a incredible year

    • Very kind of you! Yeah, definitely a good year! Wish I had the Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand photos edited for inclusion, but I guess this way they get their own time in the spotlight!

  3. Outstanding shots … you could sell your photography and photographic skills and make a good living off of it!

    • Thanks Will! Would love to, but have found it difficult to find a good platform for doing more than sharing them. Appreciate the kind words and feedback!

  4. great post..!! Awesome pictures your photography skills really amazing…
