Here in Seattle, the temperature is dipping as we catch a dry day between rainstorms. As we get ready to close down the office for the holidays I went to file away the stack of magazines from this past year that I have kept on my desk. Eight issues full of stories and pictures we've brought you over the past year. As I went to shelve 2018 I found myself leafing through the issues. And maybe it is the warmth and adventure some of the photos elicited in me or maybe it is the nostalgia of not wanting to close out the year, but I found myself admiring many of the photos that we published this past year. The below gallery highlights some of my favorite shots from this past year, what I find compelling about them, and a link to the story if you are looking to revisit some of our work from this past year. Enjoy.
