As the final minutes of the year tick away, here’s a look at 2011 through the lens of CHS. Our pictures are a function of grind it out, hold down the trigger tenacity and help from a great community of photography contributors. We’ve selected some of the most viewed and (we think) most compelling imagery featured on CHS in the past year. Un-represented are all the great images shared via the CHS Flickr pool and systems like Twitter and Facebook. By the way, here’s a look at the top CHS images from 2010. You can also check out more of our 2011 Year in Review: Most important Capitol Hill stories of 2011 | The year Capitol Hill Food+Drink broke | 2011′s 30 most-commented posts | Hill Style Top 10 | The year in development (next week!).
