12 Travel Photos from 2012

I’ve seen a lot of these end-of-the-year travel summary posts for 2012 in the blogosphere in the last week. I don’t travel nearly as much as most of the bloggers writing these posts. I had my awesome month-long trip to New Zealand, an extended weekend in Chicago, and a trip to Florida with my wife. From these I picked 12 photos I really like- to say they are ‘my top 12 from 2012’ would probably be overstating it, since I could have easily picked 100 photos from the New Zealand trip. I will eventually try to write some sort of post with my 20-30 favorite New Zealand pics, but for the purpose of this post, I just randomly selected some of the one I consider in that group.

New Zealand-

Purakuanui Falls, The Catlins


Pastoral Scene, Fiordland


Mount Tasman up close


Lake Rotoroa, Nelson Lakes National Park


Wellington and environs


Kawhia Sunset


Auckland Skyline



Stormy Chicago Skyline


The Bean (Cloud Gate), Millennium Park


Wrigley Field & the rooftop stands



Winter from the movie “Dolphin Tale” and her artificial tail

The New Zealand trip alone made it an amazing 2012 in travel (I still have 7 more days to write about!) and I’m looking forward to some exciting travels (details coming soon) in 2013!
