Top 5 Most Popular Posts For 2012

The following posts were my most popular posts for 2012. It truly is a trip down memory lane considering that none were written in 2012. These winners are full of some of my best and favorite travel photos. I must point out that I took the top 5, which of course is totally unfair to the posts I created later in the year. 🙁  As some of those actually generated more interaction even though they did not generate the most hits. Maybe next year I will change the criteria. 🙂

#1 is part of my Hometown Tourist Series. It features The Flower Fields of Carlsbad. For over sixty years, Mother Nature has transformed the rolling hills of North San Diego County into one of the most spectacular and coordinated displays of natural color and beauty anywhere in the world.

#2 is a photo tour of the Empty Quarter in Saudi Arabia. I tend to get a lot of hits on anything I write about Saudi Arabia. And, yes, the sand dunes really are that red. The colors vary because of the position of the sun, and some were taken through a bus window.

Photography: Shaybah, Ash Sharqiyah, Saudi Arabia


#3 is not even a blog post. It’s a photo. This photo has been blowing up in recent months. I get tons of hits daily on this photo.

Central Park and Fall Leaves


#4 comes from on of my favorite cities; Stockholm, Sweden. I spent a few days touring Stockholm’s Metro which has art in more than 90 of the stations, featuring over 150 artists, in what they like to call “the world’s longest art exhibition.”

#5 funny enough is a recap of my favorite travel photos from 2011.  And, when I look back over these photos, I see why they were my favorites.

  1. I loved the post with the Stockholm’s metro art. I also understand why the picture with Central Park generated lots of hits. It’s a great photo 🙂
