My favourites are the first and the last. Just absolutely gorgeous!
(you can't know how mad I am at this moment that I didn't get the camera I wanted for Xmas)

Number 1 is #1 - those orbs are stunning!

I can see why you chose these. Some of these would make the crap photographers at National Geographic hang up their cameras and go sit in a dirt hole.

You must be a pretty committed golfer!

The best thing about golfing in the snow is you rarely have to wait for people ahead of you.

I really like January's picture with the white on the tree and the snow falling. March's is awesome too, I love the light trace of snow and the solitary set of foot and golf bag (I presume) tracks in it. Nice!

I'd like the January shot the most if it wasn't the stark declaration of our doom as a species that it is.

March is a very good one. Let's look forward to more of that in 2012.

The Mourning Cloak one is especially nice as the background wood makes it look almost 3D.

The photo of the clouded sulphur is gorgeous.
