2017 Top 5
Every year I include at least one smartphone shot in my top 5 and this year is no exception. It's so great to be able to leave the dedicated cameras at home on family fun days and know you can still get a fantastic shot using the phone you carry every day. Number 2 on my list is just one of many I took on a recent family trip to #Orlando.

Got to give an honourable mention to this aerial shot with Above Barbados, this one being special as we were in St. Kitts on a client shoot at the time. It's a full 360° panorama so feel free to zoom in and out, pan up, down and all around.

Due to my late start it's gonna be a two photo day today. Number four on the list was taken in the amazing Carlisle Bay and makes the list for being one of the first #landscape shots since I started switching camera systems from Canon to #Sony.

As another year is draws to a close it's time for me to select my 5 favourite images of 2017, and in keeping with last year's tradition of starting a day late due post-Boxing Day lethargy let's get the ball rolling with my 5th favourite.

Taken at Harrismith Great House this "astro-selfie" was based on a concept I'd seen online.

The celestial centre of the Milky Way rising over Harrismith house last night. Was a little more cloudy than I'd hoped but certainly not the worst I've seen. #kirkwatkinsphotography #barbados #sky #landscape #travel #night #stars #dark #abandoned #space #exploration #outdoors #astronomy #astrophotography #milkyway #galaxy #constellation #noperson

Sunset at Copacabana
The sunsets are always amazing along the stretch of beach in Barbados. #sunset #dusk #barbados #evening #sea #ocean #reflection #seascape #landscape #beach #water #kirkwatkinsphotography

Breaking Her In
Here's the first shot out of the "new" Sony A7R Mark II. So far so good, everything looks nice and crisp.

Here's a throwback taken 6 years ago using my old Rebel Xti in a shooting swamp in Barbados. #barbados #sepia #blackandwhite #reflection #water #caribbean #swamp

And finally....number 1. One more taken while I was in Europe but what makes this one special is that it was taken with a smartphone. Every time I get a new phone I'm blown away at how far the quality has come. Can't wait for 2017 and yet another device to see what other improvements are in store!

As always I've included an honourable mention in the top 5. This one because it shows what the south coast of Barbados usually looks like, in spite of the recent flooding and sewage issues.
