2012: A Year in Photos

Tick-tock, tick-tock… the countdown to 2013 is on! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas with family and friends.

The blogging world is fairly quiet at the moment, and I’m too full of turkey and roasties to power up my own writing mojo, but I thought I’d keep things ticking over with a couple of round-up posts. I’ll do a written one over the weekend, but first of all I thought I’d gather together some of my favourite photos from the last year.

I’m thrilled to have finished the 52 Week Photography Project – I did manage to post at least one photo every week of the year – but I don’t think I’ll be repeating the project again in 2013. I’m still not ready to commit to Project 365, but I think I’d rather find something a bit more focused that makes me more thoughtful about photography, rather than just scrabbling to find a subject at the last minute every Sunday evening.

Anyway, enough chat. Here are some of my favourite photos from the last year.

  1. Ruth – your images are stunning! Makes me blush to think you complimented mine! Brava! And it is fun to see photos of your two wonderful guys. I will look forward to more of your work in past and future posts!

    • Oh goodness, you’re very kind. I’m very much a fair weather photographer – occasionally get lucky when everything falls into place naturally, but terrible with poor light and moving objects. Thank heavens for digital and the ability to take 100 terrible shots for every good one!
