We asked our photographers Joe Phelan and Andy Molloy to pick their favorite photos of 2016 and they offered up a variety of moments they caught on camera.

From sports to politics, news to features, their photos captured loss, love and life in central Maine.

So sit back, relax and enjoy our best images of 2016.
