    Those are some fantastic images. May your 2021 be a good one.



  6. Tim Bourner on December 3, 2021 at 1:04 pm

    Love that Golden Gate shot, that should be an album cover for a local indie band.



  7. luis maciel on December 3, 2021 at 1:04 pm

    Absolutely loved this break down of your past year Michael!



  8. Frank Otto Pedersen on December 3, 2021 at 1:04 pm

    Wonderful video, Michael! Thanks for sharing the beauty of the world as you see it with us. You have a powerful gift!



  9. Michael Shainblum on December 3, 2021 at 1:05 pm

    What is the MOST VALUBLE lesson you learned this year about your photography? Or just in general, let me know in the comments and thanks so much for the support!



  10. Wendy Newing on December 3, 2021 at 1:06 pm

    Such beautiful images. Absolutely enchanting.



  11. The Jacobsens, Gone Wild Wandering on December 3, 2021 at 1:06 pm

    A couple years ago we bought a camper and took a couple long distance trips from Michigan to the Rockies and further west. The camper was perfect in 2020 during the pandemic. We basically had our home on wheels and only stopped for gas. Social distancing wasn’t an issue in the woods, well most of the time. I took my kids to some of my favorite places in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and also visited some places I hadn’t seen before in the northern lower peninsula. I learned there are still alot of cool, beautiful places near home that I still need to explore. Keep Wandering!



  12. Jamo Images on December 3, 2021 at 1:07 pm

    Love your work Michael and I enjoy watching the Vlog =) However, you have way too many ads now. You need them, but please don’t go over the top with them.



  13. Tony Fields on December 3, 2021 at 1:07 pm

    So do you mostly take landscape toggery fee with a GoPro or do you use a cam cord to do the motion picture part



  14. Blackfirepdx on December 3, 2021 at 1:08 pm

    I learned this year I have to make the shoots happen, even if unpaid. Waiting around for the shoots I want to do is a waste of time. So weather I am getting paid or not, I am trying to get out and chase after it and keep my shutter working! Loved that last closing time lapse! Very nice work as well



  15. Dulcet Nature on December 3, 2021 at 1:09 pm

    They all are really great!



  16. Andri Laukas on December 3, 2021 at 1:14 pm

    Love the graphical work.
    Also what music is it?



  17. buzzj89 on December 3, 2021 at 1:14 pm

    Why do you put a watermark on your images in your own YouTube video? Good images but the ambience was lost because of the watermarks. Just my opinion.



  18. Sol Figueroa on December 3, 2021 at 1:18 pm

    Congratulations, Michael. Your work inspires me and I learn a lot from you.

    Thanks for inspiring !!



  19. Gurprataap Sandhu on December 3, 2021 at 1:18 pm

    Incredible shots!! Enjoyed your work so much this year. Good luck for 2021.



  20. HOLD Publishing on December 3, 2021 at 1:19 pm

    thanks



  21. In the Woods with Bigfoot on December 3, 2021 at 1:20 pm

    Those were some wonderful images! Thanks!



  22. Peter Cowley on December 3, 2021 at 1:21 pm

    I love the great pictures, your calming tones, your self-deprecation and your honesty. Great channel Michael, thanks from Australia! Pete



  23. Abdul Ali on December 3, 2021 at 1:22 pm

    Come on #Azerbaijan 🇦🇿🇹🇷🇮🇱



  24. Stuart Fleming Photography on December 3, 2021 at 1:25 pm

    Thanks for sharing that with us Michael.
    I loved the UTAH vlog that place is other worldly.
    Some amazing images this year.
    All the best from Scotland for 2021.
    Thanks



  25. Sean Tomlinson on December 3, 2021 at 1:27 pm

    A beautiful collection of shots. I’m surprised none of the fall colors from Utah made it but hey it’s your choice of shots. I’m excited to see your 2021 work.



  26. giannis mpoult on December 3, 2021 at 1:28 pm

  31. Larry Lancaster on December 3, 2021 at 1:33 pm

    Another question…You mentioned exposure stacking. Do you have a video on that?



  32. Wade Poitras on December 3, 2021 at 1:36 pm

    Yo! Some of the elements in this video are next level! Something is different. Like I can feel more of your emotions in the video. Really well done Mike!

  36. Dan Maynard on December 3, 2021 at 1:40 pm

    That Yosemite Falls shot is f’ing incredible. I can’t imagine how stoked one must feel getting a shot like that.



  37. Roger Fisher on December 3, 2021 at 1:40 pm

    You really made the most of your year with the cards we were all dealt.



  38. Geoffrey Simpson on December 3, 2021 at 1:41 pm

  39. Ankit Kumar on December 3, 2021 at 1:43 pm

    💚💚



  40. explOregon on December 3, 2021 at 1:44 pm

    Image #6 reminds me of my first time shooting at night. I was at the top of Haleakala on Maui and shot the lights from Kahului 10k feet below. Freezing cold but worth it. #10 is my favorite.



  41. Patty Mattes on December 3, 2021 at 1:45 pm

    I love all your images. My favorite is the pronghorn antelope shot. Thank you for sharing!



  42. Tony Fields on December 3, 2021 at 1:46 pm

  43. Larry Lancaster on December 3, 2021 at 1:48 pm

    New subscriber here…In that last shot of the Golden Gate (lovely, by the way), what is that blue building in the distance?



  44. John Johnson on December 3, 2021 at 1:48 pm

    That microphone is hideous in front of you. Time lapses are very nicely done!



  45. John H Pettigrew on December 3, 2021 at 1:48 pm

    Stunning images mate, just fantastic, thanks for sharing.



  46. CMC Images on December 3, 2021 at 1:49 pm

    Always fantastic videos, Fantastic images, Its been a tough year for everyone and being stuck in the house in the UK has been so difficult. My channel is growing but the biggest thing i have learned this year in Landscape Photography is never give up and leave until there is no longer a chance of good light and my channel has been growing learning Davinci Resolve hahahha,



  47. Amit Sengupta Vlogs on December 3, 2021 at 1:50 pm

    Your video gave me an idea to use my kid’s photos in a vlog for my Youtube channel 🙏👍



  48. andy leclerc on December 3, 2021 at 1:54 pm

    I always love how honest you are in your videos, I also love how you diversify your work, a true artist! wishing you a successful year, Michael!



  49. Darrell Wright on December 3, 2021 at 1:55 pm
