Favorite Editor Photos of 2018

December 14, 2018

As the Hideaway Report photo editor, I get to see so many different locations throughout the year — all through our editors’ lenses. This year our editors traveled to five continents, which allowed me to peruse more than 7,000 images from 27 countries. Many stood out to me, whether it was because they captured a poignant moment, illustrated a breathtaking scene or had excellent composition. Here are those I found to be the most striking of 2018.

This photo of Iguazú Falls struck me immediately, as it shows how expansive the waterfalls are across the borders of Brazil and Argentina.
