Some selections from 2022

Lens-Artist Photo Challenge #231: Favourite Images From 2022

The last 2022 favourite image post I selected your favourite images month by month. This time it is going to be an avalanche of my favourites.

January saw the first of my Life of a flower series which is now up to issue #11. It all started with a Hibiscus

Minimalism became a sort of theme for Wordless Wednesday 2022

Odd Squares was the first of Becky’s Square format challenges

There were always a cow appearing for Monday Portrait

Black and white challenge always give scope for selective colour

I started to become more adventurous with my Water Water Everywhere abstracts

There is always cuteness in my garden

Coastal scenes from around the coast where I live

Or images of the Aussie bush appeared every now and then

With a few trips up the mountains to my favourite place, the Raspberry Lookout

More monochrome images were created for a lot of different photo challenges

Eastern Whipbirds have been in the bush around my home for a few years now. 2022 saw them venture into the garden.

Always lots of bird photos. Variegated Fairy Wrens are popular to share

Not all was nature. I did venture into the city every now and then

My updated photo editing program gave me great pleasure in being creative

2022 was the start of the Shades of Grafton series for Ludwigs Monday Windows

Always flowers

Australian native flowers as well

I started taking part in Dan’s Thursday doors

Goannas like to explore my garden and will run up the nearest tree when discovered

Macro Monday is always fun

Colourful fungi popped up around the place

Playing with toys can evoke memories

Jacaranda time in Grafton is everyone’s favourite time

I had a great time editing photos for Silent Sunday

Discovering a new butterfly was exciting

Sharing my excitement of discovering new plants and flowers on my place in 2022. Purple Fringe Lillies are one of my all time favourite Australian flowers

Thanks for getting this far. I will try to promise that I won’t take more of your time next year and hope that all of those who run looking back photo challenges can all set the challenge at the same time. Yes I am joking πŸ˜‚

  1. I always admire the speed and agility with which you leap from challenge to challenge, Brian. As someone who’s well and truly stuck in a rut. Trouble is, I like it there too much to climb out. Shall I go back and pick a favourite? You do flowers awfully well. Birds too! Perhaps I’ll just keep walking.

    1. Thanks Jo. Maybe I don’t have much of a life here in the bush so photos are my thing. The best things about your rambles about the countryside is the wonderful things you find to photograph which includes flowers but the history and special finds are excellent. So I say keep walking about as there could be a piece of cake near the end πŸ€—πŸ’ž

    1. Thank you so very much Ann-Christine. Purple Fringe Lillies are just so wonderful, one of my favourite native flowers.
      I am so happy to know that my little part of the world is being enjoyed around the world πŸ€—β€οΈ


  3. What a collection! Nice to see another fringed flower. The cow looks like it is wondering what the issue with octopuses is. I liked seeing the double rose and the jacaranda tree but the goannas look like they’d need a bit of getting used to.

  4. As always Brian your images of your native flora and fauna are amazing and because they are so beautifully captured and so different from ours always count among my favorites. I’m amazed that you participate in so many challenges in addition to running your own – big kudos for being beloved by so many of us!! Keep up the incredible work my friend, you are amazing!
