Best of 2001

These images were taken during the first year after I bought the Canon D30, as I started to get serious about photography. They are from a variety of locations around North and South Carolina, and from a trip my wife and I took out west, visiting a number of spectacular sites in southern Utah and northern Arizona.

These images are among my favorites for this particular year's shooting, and I hope you enjoy them. You can view the rest of the photos on my site from this year by clicking here, and scrolling down through the links to the various Galleries. They are arranged chronologically, with the most recent at the top and the older ones toward the bottom.
