Farewell, 2016.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As the sun sets this week on what has been a particularly difficult year for myself both personally and in terms of what has been occurring globally, I am keeping my sights set on the future and aiming to have more fun, move more, live more, try some new things and experience as much as I can in the new year, as I feel as though I’ve let my anxiety and fears hold me back this year and I want to grab life come January, so I thought this orange sunset from a local park back when I lived in Bletchley fit the feeling well. Farewell, 2016, onto the next.

I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas, and that your 2016 has been far better than mine has. I will be starting a new blog in 2017 called The Happy Larkspur which you can visit here, and of course, I will have plenty of throwback nature photography here for you all as we head into the New Year. So, a big Happy New Year to you all from me, this is my last post here in 2016 but I will be back in early January. Thank you for all of your comments, likes and support and here’s to lots of good things in 2017!

Frozen Flowers

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I took this photo back in either 2010 or 2013 (I know, it’s a big difference between years but we had two big snowfalls on those years and I can’t remember which one it was!) and I was enchanted by the final few layers of ice and snow on the plants in my parents’ old garden. Here in Cumbria at the moment all of the plants have lost their petals, and the leaves are gone from the trees, so I am missing the plantlife which is usually so abundant around here, but winter brings with it a beauty all of it’s own and the promise of starting again in the New Year.

Snowy Scenes

Snow Leaves

The beautiful mountains up here in Cumbria are currently covered in snow after a chilly weekend, and while the view from my window is decidedly less snowy (cue lots of rain), the snowy scenes I saw over the weekend have got me daydreaming of the amazing snowfall we saw back in 2010. We got the chance to look at some aerial shots in our geography class and the entirety of the UK was white due to the heavy snowfall! This photo I took on that day and the branches of the trees in my parents’ garden were covered in lots of lovely, fluffy snow. Here’s hoping we get some more by Christmas!
