My favourite photos from 2011

It's end of year reflection time. I've collected together my favourite photos from 2011. It's been a great year photographically, and I'm really happy with the images below. Lots of sea, space, light, colour, simplicity, softness, prettiness, happiness and a healthy dose of bokeh - I love shooting wide open.

Most of the images have been taken on my travels - I've been lucky enough to visit Devon (and the gorgeous Saunton Sands beach), California, Dorset (stunning coast line and the beautiful Abbotsbury Sub-Tropical Gardens), Cornwall (including doing an awesome landscape photography workshop with Antony Spencer and Jason Theaker), Christchurch (with all its colourful beach huts) and three stunning Arboretums. And let's not forget my owl obsession too!

Two mosaics below - couldn't restrict myself to just one this year! You can see the full set on Flickr - or watch the slideshow.

I wish you all a very wonderful, inspired, creative, happy and healthy 2012!
