Top Photos of 2016

Another year where I’ve taken a lot of photos. The quality has varied. Many of my better shots from Daylight Music when I’ve been their official photographer. I tend to stick to a position and not move. I also try to watch the gig. But when I’m covering Daylight, I switch off from watching and move around to catch as many angles as possible.

Looking back over the year, I think there’s some pretty decent photos. Even when I’ve only had a pocket camera, I still managed to grab the odd decent photo. I’ve gathered together reasonable shots from each month.
