What a cool thread! So many wonderful pictures!
It's very hard to choose "Best of 2012", so I just picked the one I enjoyed taking the most:

The one best is a really hard call this year. I did not shoot a lot, but I did what I could to make it count. I think it comes done to this image or one with aurora over Split Rock lighthouse under a full moon.

I keep getting drawn back to this one from Zion where the rising moon began to light up the scene but had not yet obliterated the sky.

I wouldn't even begin to compare what I do with what I've seen here, but this is one of my better ones. Taken in Beaver, Arkansas in October,

Most humbling thread. I was only able to take one trip this year out to Grand Teton and Yellowstone; that was also my first major photo trip, I'm 17 and I've been shooting since I was 12, but I've just recently began my journey into the realm of DSLRs. Here is my humble submission.

this one is of Old Faithful

This is one of the sun rising onto the Tetons

Alstrom Point, Lake Powell

Technically not a single shot. Its a 48 image multi row stitch.
Canon 5D
Gigapan Epic Pro
1/4s,f/13, 68mm, iso100
Stitched in Photoshop CS5

The resolution is huge and it can be printed very large.
I have been printing it at 30x60 as a 3 panel Triptych, both in Gallery wrap Canvas
an Dye sublimation on aluminum. It has been very popular at the art shows I do.
