2016 marked the 10 year anniversary of my blog....thank you for your visits! Though my written posts have been few and far between this year, my photography website has continued to grow and I'm pleased to say this has been one of my better years for photography licensing, sales, and publications. To close out the year, I have assembled a few visual lists.
First, the Viewer's Choice - the top 16 most viewed photos of 2016 on my website, Mira Terra Images. Note that the #1 spot is a 3-way tie, all taken of the same subject!

Sadly, as 2016 comes to a close, so does the Vine app, where I managed to entertain a following of nearly 200,000 fans! My early travel vines were featured by the SF Gate Travel Section, and I later became a featured contributor to the Orbitz Travel Blog, with my #Vinecations series of articles. I hope that my vine followers will follow me over to Twitter and Instagram where I will continue posting photos and videos. Meanwhile, I hope these embeds will remain viewable on my blog for years to come.
