Happy New Year + National Geographic Photo of the Day
My blogging birthday is coming up so I’ll save my round-up of the year until then. For now I’d just like to wish all those who follow my blog, comment visit and who make my blog what it is, a very happy, prosperous new year.
I’m ending the year on a bit of a high as I made National Geographic Photo of the day on the last day of the year, couldn’t be better than that really. You can see my photo on the National Geograhpic website here.
It’s a photo that will be familiar to some of you, Iceland has been good to me this year. I posted the picture on my National Geographic ‘Your Shot’ page and thought no more of it. It generated quite a bit of interest however, was favourited by a couple of NG’s editors and chosen for the National Geographic Daily Dozen. A few weeks later, I received an email from one of the Editors asking me to write a bit more about the photograph as they’d like to make the photograph ‘Photograph of the Day’ on the last day of the year. Here it is again..
The following photograph was taken a couple of days ago at Tewkesbury Mill. The flooding in certain parts of the country in the last few weeks has been horrendous and my heart goes out to all those who’ve suffered loss. It can’t be denied that this temporary ‘water world’, in parts, can be very beautiful though..
