Every year’s end is another chance for reflections and new plans. Year after year, we share our best travel photos this time – as we reflect on our year, and in the hopes that they will inspire you for the upcoming year.
2018 was not just a year full of natural beauties, but also a year when I started taking photography more seriously. I watched courses, started reading blogs about photography and invested in a new camera. Hell, I even have a tripod, and I often use it (other times I just put my camera down onto anything stable available).
I think my enthusiasm is still way above my photography skills, but I don’t see it as a bad thing. It’s actually a guarantee for improvement. With that said, here are the best pictures I’ve taken this year:
