I've compiled my favorite photos from 2017. This is the 8th consecutive “Your Best Photos” blog project that I’ve participated in. Thanks to my friend, +Jim Goldstein, for hosting this project as usual.

A NEW HOME for CALIFORNIA & WESTERN STATES LANDSCAPE PHOTOS.

I wanted to announce it here first after having just got back from nearly three weeks of travel. So by now, most of us know that G+ is closing its doors and heading off to internet Heaven... or wherever. I'm not sure when the server plug is going to be pulled for the last time, but I enjoyed this community enough to try and give it a new home, at least for the time being.

I started this community soon after joining G+ and have had a great time moderating, along with fantastic support and help from fellow past and present moderators that have included +Ravi Masand +Ofer Dub +Franka M. Gabler +Richard Wong & +G Dan Mitchell. Thank you all! Your help was so deeply appreciated.

I know many who flocked to G+ originally did so because they didn't like the other options out there, including or especially Facebook. But it looks like Facebook won the Social Media war, so I created a new group there. If any of you are on Facebook and would like to be founding members, I hope you'll join me and continue to share your wonderful images of this great part of our little blue ball in space.

The same basic rules exist there. NO SPAM ALLOWED.

My Most Sincere Thanks to All for Sharing Your Photos Here!

Malcolm Gladwell wrote a famous book, Outliers: The Stories of Success, where his research concluded that having a world-class skill took a minimum of 10,000 hours of effective practice to achieve. Whether or not 10,000 hours is some magical benchmark is debatable but there is merit in acknowledging Gladwell’s point as it relates to photography.

Having experienced a handful of negative experiences at popular photography hotspots over the years, I was apprehensive about photographing sunrise at Grand Teton National Park.

It’s no secret that over-crowding is becoming an increasingly common concern at a number of our National Parks. With the crowds come more problems. I have some solutions that I would like to propose in order to improve visitor experience.

Whenever I scroll through my social media feeds these days, it seems like many photographers only share their photos for the purpose of selling workshops or some other kind of service. Perhaps it’s due to who I follow on social media but I’m seeing less photographers share their photos for the sake of personal expression.

To be great or even good at photography it takes a lot of time and resources. The same can be said for marriage and parenting. So how do photographers manage to balance their photography efforts with family life?

Like many photographers, I own a collection of photography books. I’ve curated a list of my favorite books for photographers. http://www.rwongphoto.com/blog/books-for-photographers/
