A New Year, new plans and new ideas


At the beginning of any New Year, most of us will reflect on the year just gone and think about the year ahead. If you are fortunate you might be able to find some space to yourself in this crowded world in which to contemplate the past and consider the future. I for one have been giving some thought as to how my photography will evolve in 2017, but I will leave those ideas for another day.

This morning my wife and I, together with our cocker spaniel, took a walk along the beach at Wittering. It was a lovely sunny morning, cold but very refreshing. Although there were a number of people out and about I happened to spot this lone figure walking along the wet sand, head down, as he put one foot in front of the other – What does 2017 hold in store for this individual? What was going through his mind? I will never know but I hope he found the space and solitude to consider times past and is able to look forward to the future.

Wishing you all a Healthy, Happy and Peaceful New Year

    Happy New Year to you, Alan. Hope 2017 brings many more photo opportunities (for me to enjoy).
    Your images always inspire me to look at the light more closely – thank you for that.

    I like the minimalism in this shot, Alan. It raises questions to which we can only guess the answers. Very appropriate for early Jan.
    We have enjoyed greatly our first year down in this part of the country, and are really looking forward to exploring further afield in 2017. A very Happy New Year to you and yours (somewhat belated). I’m still catching up on this week’s posts.

      Thanks Andy….and a very happy New Year to you as well. I am pleased your move to West Sussex has worked out well for you and hopefully will provide plenty of photographic inspiration in 2017 and the years ahead.
