The Best of 2022: the year in 150 Photographs

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 15:13
– writer/photographer Derek Maul capturing images during the U.K. adventure in October

Impossible! The very idea of “The Year 2022 in Photos” is untenable. But I have tried. There are – best guess – around 150 photos here, or around ten for each month.

I may possibly have included a few extra from the big travel experiences:

  • Rebekah’s three weeks in Bahrain;
  • taking David and Beks to the Mountains;
  • the amazing vacation in the U.K.

But this is just a sampling, just a taste, just an outline for today. If you want to read your way through the year, that’s going to be somewhere around 175,000 words (the equivalent of two or three books!). But this way you can scroll through 150 photos and get pretty much the same experience!

What an amazing year this has been. What an unimaginable and unpredictable conglomeration of faith, love, joy, sadness, pain, light, opportunity, disappointment, peace, anguish, travel, grace, mercy, and so much more.

Click on the first photograph and then scroll through. Give each picture a full second and then move on. I believe you will value the experience.

And, as we move into tomorrow, and another New Year, try to own this benediction: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” – DEREK
