San Antonio's Most Beautiful Photos of 2016

San Antonio is about as photogenic as it gets. We've got the Alamo, the River Walk, historical missions, and, of course, Tim Duncan. Over the past year, photographers around the city captured San Antonio's beauty with ease. As we dive into 2017, we wanted to take a moment to look back at some of their best accomplishments. Here are our favorite photos of the city from 2016.
