The Best Nature & Landscape Photography Gallery Fine Art from 2019

As 2019 draws to a close, I have been looking back over the past year (and really, the last two years) as a major turn in my photography career. I went from selling open editions at the beginning of 2018 to transitioning into much higher quality limited edition fine art gallery quality images by the end of the year. Some of my best work from 2018 included Moraine Lake Sunrise Brilliance, Thunderbird and Maroon Bells Magic. It was also capped off with a bucket-list trip up to Hyder, Alaska, my first real photography trip down to the Texas bluebonnets and an awesome weeklong roadtrip through the Pacific Northwest and the Portland Japanese Garden.

As 2019 began, I knew I had to top 2018. That meant a LOT of traveling to some pretty iconic places. From return trips to California, Washington and Oregon to finally photographing the stunning light beams of Antelope Canyon in Arizona and catching some pure magic as winter and fall collided in the Grand Tetons of Wyoming, 2019 brought some phenominal images! I launched a number of new fine art galleries including the ocean photography collection, which includes beach photography and seascapes from Florida and California and will soon include many new Hawaii images in early 2020. So with that said, here are some of my favorite images from 2019!

I hope that you’ve enjoyed my 2019 look back at the best landscape and nature photography fine art gallery images in my limited edition collections! I’m actually still editing some images from the past year that might have made it into this list, but will have to be held back for 2020 images. And speaking of 2020, I’ll be starting off with a bang as I head to Kauai, Hawaii for the first time in almost six years! I will also begin showing my work at various art festivals around the midwest and Rocky Mountains, so stay tuned for information on that!
