Top 100 Photos of 2016

It’s that time of year again.

Well, it was that time of year about a month ago, but I was busy. Sorry.

So now it’s that’s time of year. I’ve looked back at tens of thousands of photos I captured in 2016 as we travelled across the United States and Canada, finishing up our epic year-long #motherofallroadtrips, along with side trips to Mexico, Turkey, and Japan. And I’m constantly blown away by how many amazing places we’ve visited.

I know I say this each year, but it was jolly difficult to narrow down this list to a reasonable size. It seems every year my top photo list gets longer so perhaps I’m getting soft in my old age. Or perhaps my photos are getting better. You decide.
