This photograph was taken in Mousehole a few days ago. Each year the people of this tiny fishing village in the west of Cornwall decorate the harbour to raise money for charity. Mulled wine was on offer along with mince pies and the opportunity to drop some coins in a bucket. When I visited, a group of carol singers were doing their best despite the weather. It was raining, the wind was howling but the atmosphere in the village was a festive and happy one.
The blurred object in the bottom right of the picture is a whale spouting, outlined in lights, but the wind and fairly loose tethering were conspiring against a decent capture over a long exposure.
I’d like to thank everyone who has followed, commented and supported this blog over the last year. It’s been a pretty amazing 12 months for me and it wouldn’t have been the same without your company. Thanks for being there.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a very happy new year.. See you in 2015! :-)
