Although this image isn't really my most favorite, it's the one I'm currently working on to test my new printer with.

Nice Kerry. Ah, the Badlands of Caledon or Cheltenham, a place I often frequent and recognize well. The Badlands are great especially if you can't get out to far away places.

dear people,

I's hard to find my best picture, but one series impressed me most. On the 19th of November I had an appointment on one of the islands in the "waddensea" , Ameland, in the north of the Netherlands. During the drive to the ferry the fog became thicker and thicker, so much that I wasn't worrying about being late for the ferry anymore; it would have been delayed anyway. I embarked as the last passenger and irrisistably I went upstairs to the highest decks for the big views in the mist. The Ferry left, and in a few moments the sun started to burn hesitantly through the fog. I put the 2.8 180 on the d700 and started to report about the sun, the fog, the water, the birds and the mudbanks. It really felt as "writhing with light". Somewhat later blue sky appeared and I changed to 20mm wideangle.
Later, at home, when the rush was over, I felt that I had been looking in the the creation of mother earth herself and I realized those images were special.
The "waddensea" is a world heritage nature reserve, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wadden_Sea and the only place in the netherlands where we can experience truly wild nature, active geology. link to the album on picasa:

a good and happy 2012 to you all,

This may be my favorite because I almost deleted it. It was very dull and lackluster raw from the camera. It is an HDR done in SNS-HDR Pro.

I was photographing an old abandoned bridge over the river and just before I left, took this just for the heck of it.

degrub, thanks. I have been championing SNS-HDR Pro and this is one of the images that made up my mind. I find that SNS can give very natural looking results if desired. I call this the 'slightly enhanced reality' or 'natural dramatic' look. The blending of the tones and color in SNS is the best I've found-no harshness-and I have most of the major HDR programs.

I'm always in love with my latest shot. Here is my latest from the Salt River near Saguaro Lake, near Apache Junction AZ,  taken Tuesday morning. I visit this spot every year during this two week period when this tree is at its maximum color. The sun comes over the mountain at about 9 am and at 9:40 lights up this tree while the background remains in shadows.

My favourite is on a piece of film which I've yet to scan. 
This one's my favourite of the ones that are already on my computer.

Every year I assemble a few of my favorite images and publish them to my blog.  I'm a little late this year, but since bronchitis is kicking my butt, I knocked it out this morning.  Please check out 2011 - My Year in Photos.

I've really enjoyed all the fantastic photos posted here thus far.  Looking forward to seeing more!

Bret,
Very nice. The B&W are terrific. Your rendering of the sky in "Breaking Storm Over Kane Creek Canyon" & "Storm Light at the Fiery Furnace" is very well done.

This collection will be hard to beat in '12, although I suspect that you're up to the task.

Thanks Brett for sharing. It is difficult to choose just one!

FYI, I've posted a Gallery: 2011 page on my blog at luxborealis.wordpress.com.

So, you'd rather shift that difficulty to us?

Btw, the OP asked for one (of your choice); it was not an invitation for self promotion.

Not at all, Slobodan. FYI - I did post a single image on page 2. I'm just following Brett's lead. Perhaps a new topic is warranted.
