This week’s Sunday Stills challenge theme is ‘Your 2022 Year-in-Review.’ See more responses here. Like last year, I’ve gone with a favorite photo from each month of 2021, with a caption and link to the post the photo first appeared in.

      Thanks Lisa and Happy New Year to you. I’ve had a turtle photo from last year’s favorites as my desktop for the past 12 months, but was finally moved to switch it to the manta ray photo in this post, probably my favorite photo of the year.

    Happy New Year, Graham! All of our snow is making me long for another trip to the BI or Maui! Your opening shot of the high surf is spectacular! I love your year in review–these truly are the best of the best. I know you post 365 days a year and I’ve seen many of these–really a great recap. I love the owl mirror decal, will have to check out that post! Thank you for your loyal support of Sunday Stills!

      It’s pleasantly warm at 8:00 pm here so a good place to be if the cold is getting to you! Thank you for hosting Sunday Stills. I know you put an enormous amount of work into it. All the best for 2023.
