My reporting for mongabay.com took me to six continents in 2011 and I was fortunate to take photos on several of the trips. Overall I added more than 10,000 new photos to the travel section of the site during the year.
Most of my pictures this year are from Indonesia, Colombia, Panama, and Peru, although there are a good number from the United States, especially California and Hawaii.
Next year promises to be another full year of travel and reporting.
Below are some of my favorite pictures from 2011. These are randomly distributed, so click on each image for further details and a larger version.
Thank you for reading mongabay.com in 2011 and I wish you the best for 2012!
