Michael Frye has posted a link to his Top 10 Images of 2011 and my what a beautiful collection it is.

The votes are in, and here are my top ten photographs for 2011 as chosen by you, the readers!

The response was truly extraordinary. 225 people looked through my initial selection of 41 images and posted their picks here on the blog, on Facebook, Google+, and by email. My deepest thanks to all of you who took the time to look through these photographs and voice your opinions. I really appreciate your help in making these difficult choices!
