Top 10 Travel Photos: 2011

Yosemite Falls Moonbow Star Trails, finalist in the 2011 Astronomy Photographer of the Year contest
Continuing the retrospective look at my last decade of travel and landscape photography, 2006 - 2015.  Here are some of my favorites from 2011. This was my first full year covering Southern California for my guidebook "Photographing California Vol. 2 - South, A guide to the natural landmarks of the Golden State", so naturally I cris-crossed the state with much enthusiasm, to find the best possible sites to include, in the best possible conditions.
