I got to see a very very snowy winter and a hot summer (by our standards, that is) in my homeland, Finland, but I also had the chance to see The Alps in Engelberg, Switzerland, as well as the Bavarian region and German Alps in Garmich-Partenkirchen, Germany. I ended shooting some weddings, too, which added different kind of experience to my photography. On top of everything, I ended up moving to Sydney, Australia and also fulfilled one of my travelling dreams by touring a bit around New Zealand. So all in all, amazing places and amazing opportunities for improving my photography and I think I ended up getting couple of nice shots here and there. I don't want to view these images as the top selections for the year, but rather as a photography collection that I see covering my year of 2011 pretty well and the way I personally see it.
All I can say is: The World Is Beautiful.
Here we go, the chosen 11 photos from the year 2011. Let this be a great start for the photo-rich year of 2012.
